Lives and works in Croatia
1972: Born in Rijeka, Croatia
In his artwork Nemanja Cvijanovic uses almost all the media and techniques of visual and performing arts. His work is based on conceptual / post-conceptual / setting and is developed through the practice of collective performance, the performance of interactive installations and facilities, video production and multimedia projects, painting, photography, and sound works.
His focus of interest is questioning and uncovering the mechanisms of production, manipulation and consumption of meaning in post-modern culture that is based on a critical attitude towards the ideological and aesthetic values of modernist culture and society. His criticism is manifested in the works of art based on the structural and semantic order of pre-existing works, historical events or phenomena, by means of mimesis and / or simulation as well as the use of visual meta-language.
Cvijanovic lucidly links past and present, parallel realities of different social systems and different artistic strategies.
