IVANA BAŠIĆ | SUNY New Paltz Lecture Center 100 | Art Exhibits | Chronogram Magazine

This is a past event.


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 colors she chooses refer strongly to the human body. Pink, white and natural combinations are reminiscent of blood, bone and flesh.
