…Ana Vujović constructs a garden of the future, and new forms of existence, where natural and artificial elements come into an incredibly close relationship, in which it is not entirely certain which side is trying to dominate and integrate the other. The relationship between plastic and nature exists in a seductive game of accumulation, overlapping, alternating nullification, acceptance and mutual absorption, and Ana adeptly takes it to an absolute extreme where she envisions a future in which plastic has become an integral part of the earth. Melted rubber has found its way through plant roots, infiltrating every pore, and now grows with them; silicone interpolations alter the structure of wood and replace its elements, synthetics bloom from the crevices of cracked branches, and, resilient, wild, medicinal plants are left without air, trapped in the inability to fulfil their primary function…

Ana Vujović is a visual artist who uses a variety of media in her practice, including spatial installation, sculpture, digital art and drawing, often incorporating experiments with sound as well. She graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Painting Department. Since 2002, she has presented her work in numerous group and solo exhibitions in the country and abroad. Ana Vujović’s work explores the post-analogue experience, actively questioning the individual’s position in relation to heritage, surroundings, society. Reflecting various influences, her work seeks a critical approach to history, canons, authorship.
