Croatian-born Sydney based artist Biljana Jančić will be creating a site-specific installation as part of Monumentalism opening at Kudos Gallery next Tuesday the 8th of November. Currently exhibiting work at the MCA’s Primavera and Tarra Warra Biennial 2016 curated by Helen Hughes and Victoria Lyn, Biljana has exhibited extensively including exhibitions at Artspace and Stills Gallery. She is the recipient of the 2016 Fauvette Loureiro Memorial Artists Travel Award.
Jančić’s large-scale architectural interventions investigate the way in which subjects and objects inscribe, delineate or territorialise sites. Her artworks operate as punctures that highlight, amplify or distort existing architectural features. These interventions can be seen as parallel to interferences in virtual spaces, where phenomena such as glitches and other ‘errors’ create an awareness of the fragility that belies the structures that organise our lives.
Biljana Jancić completed her Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2007 and PhD in 2013, both at Sydney College of the Arts. Her art making practice is supported by her critical writing and curatorial practice.
