Don’t Take It Personally is a surprisingly crafted, scathing indictment of human and societal behaviours in turbulent times, inspired by the writings of author Dubravka Ugrešić and her experiences with collective violence, resistance, and exile. In two movements, the film hones in on the struggle with everyday cruelties in a capitalist system, deeply rooted in the imperialist violence hidden within paintings from the Dutch Golden Age.
Aphasia performance is developed at the intersection of music, film, storytelling, and dance. Immersed in the atmosphere of a (post-war-zone)nightclub, the audience physically participates in an intimate investigation of violence, the world of perpetrators, bystanders, and individual responsibility.
Aphasia (Act 3) brings to life a well-known photograph. Although it is never unveiled in the film, we recognize it described and interpreted in two mirroring doppelgangers, a monologue by journalist Barbara Matejčić and choreography of violence performed by Ivana Jozić.
Aphasia film project is an unsettling inquiry into the representation of violence and the violence of representation. This documentary gesture explores how collective crimes keep being repeated and reflects on social and political constellations, unfolding constructions behind nation-states and national identities.
A film poem filmed at Antwerp Zoo echoes diasporic voices of displacement. The work is inspired by the writings of W.G. Sebald, who offered an alternative model of memory through intertextuality and a metonymical narrative technique.
Song consists of four chapters, each exploring the different connotations of the song ‘To You, Dear Mother’. They thematise the complex problematics of exile and place(lessness), with the song as the video’s lifeline.
Mira, Study for a Portrait is a work on absence, which uses the form of the portrait to explore the fragility of memory as well as the relationship between the photographic medium and perception.

Through the most intimate confessions of habitually unspoken, hidden dark thoughts, urges and needs outside acceptable or polite behaviour, altered images of oneself and others, as well as one’s life, this work brings us close to the inner struggle of a woman temporarily ’closed for inventory’.
In What it Feels Like for a Girl photography was chosen as the visual medium of the examination, and not only representation, of the female subject in contemporary culture.
The videos present subjects, young, academically educated polyglots from Eastern Europe, dressed up as “Mozarts”, selling concert tickets in the streets of Vienna. But rather than their predetermined and fixed identities, the issue here is a complex juxtaposition of different signifiers (de)constructing these identities: costumed bodies in constant motion in public space, their biographies and favourite songs sung by an authentic “inner” voice.
