1994 Zagreb, Croatia
Katarina Juričić (1994, Croatia) is an artist and researcher on photography, seeking for new forms to embody photography and explore its physicality. She designs environments in which immaterial substances of light and color gain their physical properties and evoke a familiar experience.
We see, think and live in images. And more often than not, images we encounter are digital and therefore immaterial, yet we accept them as real. Taking this paradox as a starting point for her work, Juričić studies the potential of photography to visualize the equally intangible, but more mysterious concept of human memory.
In the time when we engage with the world from the surface of our screens which in turn simplifies and dematerliaizes our experience of the world, Juričić’s work follows the desire to re-establish an emotional and physical connection to the environment. The final form of the work are installations in which light, colors, materials and motifs from the photographic work expand into the space and create a living image.
Katarina Juričić holds a Photography BA from Royal Academy of Art (The Hague) and Journalism BA from Faculty of Political Science (Zagreb).
Her work was shown in Galerie Ron Mandos, Melkweg Expo and at Unseen in Amsterdam; Galerie Bart in Nijmegen; Nest and Grey Space in The Middle in The Hague; Rietveld paviljoen in Amersfoort.
