Artists biography :
Marianne Marić : She earned her Master’s of Fine Arts with distinction from NCAD (Dublin). Maric works with different mediums such as video, sculpture or photography and uses stylism, fashion and performance. In addition to her artistic practice, Maric also works as a curator. Marić considers the body as architecture, and plays with symbolism in her works, while often employing her close friends as subjects. Her pieces are representative of ‘Surrealism’, the artist’s favorite word and artistic period. Her “Lamp girls” performance was a success in France, and was exhibited at Magda Danysz Gallery, Palais Galliera, and Musée de la Mode in Paris. In conjuction with « Lamp girls », Maric designed a similar dress collection, which can be illuminated. Marić took the famous residency at Les Arques in France and created choreography based on bondage influence in le CAC, Brétigny.
Radenko Milak : Radenko Milak, born in 1980 in Travnik in the former Yugoslavia, lives and works in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Studied at academies in Banja Luka and Belgrade, group exhibitions in Paris, Munich, Vienna, etc. Works included in the following collections: Deutsche Telekom Art Collection; Agnès B., Paris; National Gallery of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo; Museum of Contemporary Art of the Republic of Srpska in Banja Luca, etc.
Bojan Stojčić : Bojan Stojčić was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. His work is based primarily on interventions in public space (both physical and virtual). Those interventions are primarily textual and almost always demonstrate intimate thoughts and ideas of the artist. Positioned in particular places or set on different objects coming from artist’s living space, all his works carry a message that is clear, sometimes painfully realistic, sarcastic and most of the time funny. More than that, some works (realised in different institutions) are politically and socially engaged and use the space itself to bring about these written metaphors. Works done in studio are mostly text-based drawings and paintings, or drawings that incorporate different narratives; pictorial or textual.
Among other prizes and recognitions, Bojan Stojčić was a ZVONO award finalist (2014.) and a winner of National drawing competition (2014.)
Since 2015, Bojan Stojčić is represented by Duplex100m2 gallery, Sarajevo
