(*1992 in Belgrade, Serbia)

BA and MA in Sculpture, Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Serbia.

In her work, Gorana is exploring the spatial connections of everyday objects, analyzing how the viewer’s perception of these objects, depending on the context, is constantly changing. Defining who we are is always shaped by our own definitions of others, meaning that defining ourselves is only possible through some kind of boundaries. In that interstate is where the artist works, creating a physical space which emphasizes these universal emotions. Her approach to sculpting, drawing and painting is shaped by intrinsic motivations in which she tries to find a universal language of communicating. Often, her works can be perceived as a response to our own stand towards technology and its influence on society in general.
