Born in 1989 the Netherlands, she now lives and works in Amsterdam. In June 2018 Jovana graduated and received her BFA from AKV St.Joost in Den Bosch. Working as an artist she has had several exhibitions and curated the exhibition ‘The Dro(w)ned World’ at the Biesbosch Museum in January 2017. At the moment Jovana works a lot with photographs and videos from her personal archive and combines this with newly shot material and found footage.

 

Coming from a Serbian family, Jovana  was born and grew up in the Netherlands. Her divided childhood between the Netherlands and Serbia results in having memories in both countries. Jovana was always fascinated with the different cultures in which she grew up in. Her background is an important part of her research and studies, that results in documentary like short videos about nostalgia, melancholia, and living in between 2 different worlds.
