ABOUT

As someone who grew up in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the 1990s, I had no choice but to witness what it means to live through a social disaster and economic breakdown. This experience of a feral, never-ending transition and cultural disappearance became a part of my intrinsic spacetime, a mechanism which is constantly ticking out critical questions. From the other side, as an artist-migrant, having lived in five European countries within the last ten years, I am trying to understand how my homeland memories define the way I walk and act in my new living spaces and interact with diverge offsets of European bureaucracy and adhocracy.
The choice to address these questions means to me much more than an occasion to make an “art” - it brings me the happiness of exploring and understanding a geometry of our inner universes and their fragility to cultural patterns, technological flows, and social frictions. Therefore, one can say that the work is focused to explore the phenomenology of cultural experience, mainly digging through internal monologues and mental registries of systems of economy, science, and politics.
Some of the results came in a form of Moving Chronotopes, a type of Bakhtian dialogical system of ideas, works of art and writings, which examine nodal, spatiotemporal categories in the experience of actual society, such as profit, control, domination, inflation, antagonism, but also memory, uncertainty, and well-being.

"We move. We create paths. We repeat paths. Things are happening on these paths. They start vibrating, they become alive strings. The strings intersect each other, ending up in knots - six dimensional structures living inside our mind. They are expanding and resonating through our body, like branes through the Universe. Sometimes we see them as words, images, voices, feelings, past, present, future, or just possibilities. They remain linking us to who we are, to what this world is about."
