About

© Edina Hadrović, 2023.

Đejmi Hadrović (Jamie Hadrovic) is an ultracontemporary post-war artist. She is the winner of the YVAA Young Visual Artist Award in Slovenia in 2022.

Đejmi creates short films, video artwork, photos, performances, and installations. With Plato’s allegory of the cave in mind, she tries to approach a wide range of subjects in a multi-layered way in the context of contemporary visual culture. With a conceptual approach, her works reference post-colonial theory and the avant-garde or the post-modern. Her works demonstrate how life extends beyond its own subjective limits and often tell the story of the effects of global cultural interaction over the latter half of the twentieth century. It challenges the binaries we continually reconstruct between Self and Other, between our own ‘cannibal’ and ‘civilized’ selves by directly responding to the surrounding environment and using everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context.
