Ivana Bukovac - Nameless

Ivana Bukovac, an artist working and living between Serbia and Italy will be presenting her latest multimedia series of work, once again for the Belgrade audience in the Big Gallery of KC Grad. The opening of this exhibition entitled Bezimena (Serbian for Jane Doe) is scheduled for Monday June 15th at 8 pm. The exhibition will be opened until June 28th. Bukovac was born in Serbia, but she graduated from The Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, and obtained a Masters degree from the same institution. She has been exhibiting her work since 2008, both in group and solo exhibitions in Serbia and Italy.

Bezimena, a special multimedia exhibit of her latest work is a result of an artistic research of the individual identity and its fragile nature. Individual identity can be observed as an entity built by various elements, those concerning persons inner being, but also the ones dictated by the environment. Bukovac is successfully visualizing that entity by creating enigmatic portraits which both can suggest and negate ethnic and gender identity trough the elements of folklore costumes and undefined facial features, which can seem familiar but are not completely defined in the paintings. Besides the paintings, the collision of identities is presented trough a very interesting artistic object, done in a very traditional technique but with a very untraditional material instead, which must be a surprise until the opening night, but is literally connected to one’s identity. The sound of the audio installation, realized in collaboration with the experimental musician Dejan Subotić, which in the style of roll-call participates in the process of destabilization and negation of identity, suggests possible answers that still resist the ambiguous nature of the image, symbolizing the struggle within oneself, and the difficult creation and design of the individual identity.
