Ivana-4-800px Since I Met You I Have No Peace, 2011 collage, 60x40cm
Evolving between personal history and transitory memories, the artistic practice of Ivana Ivković is primarily based in the medium of drawing which which she creates site-specific interventions and distinctive environments encompassing other media. Her work has been described as captivatingly frank and yet intensely private and self-reflexive. Intimate quotidian reactions, sensations and observations towards specific cultural and historical narratives are the starting point in Ivana’s body of work, resulting in expressive, tender, and thought-provoking drawings where images and text coincide.
