Interview: Tijana Mandaric

Luca Curci talks with Tijana  Mandaric during VISIONS – THE GARDEN OF LIQUID IDENTITIES in Venice.

Tijana Mandarić is a Serbian visual artist and new media designer, born in Belgrade. From the earliest age she was closely related to fine arts, through drawing and sculpting. In her work she is drawn to an idea on how to transpose an ordinary object deriving from it a qualitatively different meaning with her personal attitude embedded. Playing with different materials she creates new objects as delicate carriers of emotions. Lately she is tending to merge porcelain, her favourite material, with digital features as a reflection of her emotional adventure in modern world. Recently she has exhibited her works in Belgrade, Florence and Venice. Due to strange set of circumstances befalling former Federal Republic Yugoslavia (FRY), she graduated from the Faculty of Economy of the University of Belgrade with BA in Economy and the MBA in Finance and Banking. After graduation she worked in corporate world (a financial audit company and an advertising agency). Nevertheless, she kept nourishing her creative impulse attending art school for drawing, painting, sculpting and ceramics for years. Eventually she finished master studies in New Media Design at the Faculty of Digital Arts of the Metropolitan University in Belgrade with the master theses in digital air sculpture.
