Isidora Krstic

Biography

(*1987 in Belgrade, former Yugoslavia). Lives and works in Vienna, Austria since 2012. She graduated in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade (2011) and received a Master (M.A.) in Art and Science from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna (2016). Her work can be seen as cross-discipline artistic research that addresses questions regarding identity and the aspects of the individual as a biological, social and emotional entity within various systems and networks. Her work always tries to speak through the very methods, procedures and materials employed, often breaking down and questioning traditional artistic procedures. She works with installative forms, often combining a range of media such as painting, drawing, collage, print, animation, video. She is also a co-founder and member of artist-run U10 Art Space, Belgrade and a member of 280a collective from Vienna.
