Ivana Ivković

NGVU – Podgorica


Ivana Ivković (1979, Belgrade) has gained recognition with her frank, intensely private and self-reflexive artistic approach. Her nomadic lifestyle – travels, frequent geographical dislocations and exposures to different cultural surroundings – has had a major influence on her work, which involves personal history, real and invented memories. The notions of identity and gendered experience are the main elements in her works, especially her performances. In the most unexpected way, Ivana Ivković shifts the infamous classical roles as played out between women and men, using the naked male body as a performative instrument within orchestrated scenes, thus reflecting the prejudices and beliefs of a certain environment, as well as the layered relationship between an individual and the system. Ivana has been exhibiting her work internationally since 2006. She has been a recipient of renowned stipends and awards, and her works are part of numerous collections: Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade, ifa collection in Stuttgart, October Salon in Belgrade, Wiener Städtische Art collection of contemporary art in Vienna, Telenor collection of Contemporary Serbian art in Belgrade, Museum of the City of Belgrade.
