  • Dragana Jurisic - YU: The Lost Country

    [ProjectSpace] Emma Döbken

    31 March till 27 May

    Dragana Jurisic grew up in Yugoslavia, a country that ceased to exist in 1991. On the basis of a 1941 travel report by the British author Rebecca West she, together with her good friend Michal Iwanowski, travelled the states that came into being following the falling apart of her country of birth. It was initially meant to be a reconstruction of a lost home country, yet it became a chain of experiences showing how she herself changed during the course of time. It also demonstrates how photographs can give voice to the feeling of being uprooted. Next to Jurisic’s work, this exhibition displays photographs by Iwanowski for the first time as well.

Monica: “The object is very sci fi - like something that might go into space - and it is using the language of the extraordinary side of space exploration: very exotic and scientific. That is a trick because when you are attracted to it and you can be fascinated by it, but the inside is very mundane.”
