Jovana Stulic (1989) comes from a Serbian family and was born in the Netherlands. She lives and works in Amsterdam.

Researching contemporary life and the cross-cultural identity of her personal life results in a hybrid body of work that consists of a combination of video work, sculpture and photography.

A significant part of her research and studies revolves around themes like childhood, culture, identity, tradition, nostalgia, and melancholia.

With a sense of existential loneliness, a sadness that we all carry with us, the body of work is not about what is visible, but what you can feel in the emptiness of it. This leaves room for imagination, opportunity and interpretable space.

/////

 

'My work stems from a longing for lost time and place.

The double layer of sadness and beauty in melancholy to me is beautiful and therefore a very valuable inspiration in my work.  Photographic material from family archives is currently an important element in my work.'


/////

Jovana has had several exhibitions in the Netherlands and Europe in the past years. Besides working as an artist she is connected to several cultural initiatives and has worked on previous projects as a curator, art critic, writer and PR & communications specialist.
