About

Ivana Bašić was born in 1986 in Belgrade, Serbia. The artist completed her M.P.S. at the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, in 2012. In her work, Bašić addresses the vulnerability and transformation of the body and human matter. By using different materials in the work (such as wax, glass, steel, alabaster, oil paint) and combining these with technique and immaterial matters (such as breath, pressure and rigidity), the sculptures acquire a post­human quality. The colours she chooses refer strongly to the human body. Pink, white and natural combinations are reminiscent of blood, bone and flesh.

The artist has exhibited widely, mounting solo and group presentation at KUMU Museum, Tallinn, Estonia; The Whitney Museum, New York, New York; 6th Athens Biennial, Athens; Hessel Museum of Art, Annendale-On-Hudson, New York; 57.Belgrade Biennial, Belgrade, Serbia; Center for Contemporary Art Estonia, Talinn, Estonia; La Panacee Museum of Contemporary Art, Montpellier, France; Künstlerhaus Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz, Austria; Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, New York; Loyal Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden. Her work is in the permanent collection of The Whitney Museum, New York, New York. The artist lives and works in New York, New York.
