Stories about moments

was a project consisting of transformation of people's stories about their experiences of a perfect moment. I cut final texts into semi-transparent sheets of paper

One-woman exhibition

at the VN Gallery in Zagreb

I take boxes different shapes and sizes, open them, transform them from a 3D object into a two-dimensional surface which will hold the text. Their inside I use as the walls of the house / book on which I will write. Writings in the inside of the book / house / box are left naked, unprotected with time, pages, movement of pages. Text  is visible immediately; the idea is being digested at once. I am taking away the element of time so I can see if the idea of the book will collapse or hold.
























This exhibition represents just one part of my constant book explorations, physical and conceptual play which is fluid.
I perceive written words as objects. Small, big, round, flat, yellow, white, fragila, strong, cold, soft. (My) texts are just compositions of different words. They are not telling a story, they are not painting a picture. 
By default, they are trying to fing a meaning.

de+/-construction

The Book is always an idea.

My new work will be on display until the beginnig of April at The Museum od Contemporary art in Zagreb, as part of a group show HT Nagrada@msu.
























 












Through the extreme physical construction of the layers of elements (pages, letter stencils, cut letters, binding materials, photographs, drawings, text sketches, erased text..) in this fluid installation I want to expand the space of a book into the gallery space to show the questions/answers: the whole doesn't have an end; text doesn't have a beginning: elements/fragments of the book are the book, the book/the idea is a container.. of what?
Parts of the book are by themselves the entirety; they are in constantly changing relations, without permanent position or a link. The book is always in a deconstruction mode.

55 experimentS

I've been very productive lately & also experimenting a lot with ways of building a book. but for most of the work I have done in last week or two I have no idea is it any good. - one of the best things about time is that it gives us the answer to that question.

Maybe lost?

working on a couple of deadlines... for possible exhibitions next year.. and I got a bit wonder off the trail of a book. I guess it's difficult to make a book. it takes time & people don't invest half of that time to really look at it. . so, maybe I kind of gave up. maybe I will keep new books just for me. in my head. what I'll show now are just fragments of one big book. maybe it will be enough for a proper reading..

Solo exhibition

here in Zagreb...
I wanted to show my process of playing with the fragile line between a book and a drawing/poster/a piece of paper and ask a question when does the book begin? that led me to another question (and not the answer as one would expect) & that is: what if a book is made/born with every thought?

Exhibition

in a couple of weeks, I will participate in a group show here in Zagreb.
I was asked to show my latest work, a pair of boxes, full of tiny papers (tea bags paper) with writings on them.
but, the author of the show decided the boxes will be under glass. I agreed because that is how she wanted to manipulate the viewer's reading of my work. I would never make that decision but in this case I trust her to do that.
