Jelena Juresa has been extensively working with the questions of identity, politics of memory and oblivion through the media of photography, video and text. The focus of Jelena Juresa's work is the relationship between the observer and the observed within the confines of the image, and what it does and does not convey. Being an artist who works with history and with archives, Juresa investigates the notion of truth on the verge of representation, hence combining private memories with artifacts and political and historical narratives.

“It is possible that the following idea lies at the heart of her artistic creed: while exploring the lost and regained identity of the Other, we are searching for and testing our own” [1].
