Jovana Stulic (1989) was born in the Netherlands but is originally from Serbia.
Growing up in different cultures, she formed a melancholic view on the past, which is an essential component in Jovana’s work.
Looking for a place that until now only existed in the mind,
Jovana tries to capture this place or moment in time and history,
by searching for the meaning of her cultural background.
The idealisation is a desperate act to glorify a memory that never happened.
She will show a video installation in which she composed an atmosphere and understanding of this
longing feeling to the place that doesn’t exist.

 

žalost – život – želja 

(droefheid – leven – verlangen)

(sadness – life – desire

 

despair and melancholy make

you yearn and idealize

the construction of my memory of the past and

the search for that ultimate place in the presence makes

connecting these 2 worlds

an endless metaphor

when I look out the window and

say, I don’t know where I am

 

wanhoop en weemoed doet 

verlangen en idealiseren 

de constructie van mijn herinnering van het verleden en 

de zoektocht naar die ultieme plek in het heden maakt 

het verbinden van deze 2 werelden 

een oneindige metafoor 

als ik uit het raam kijk en 

zeg ik weet niet waar ik ben
