Sanja Latinović

SANJA LATINOVIĆ (b. 1983, Belgrade, Serbia)

Although a sculptor by vocation, Sanja focuses her work mainly on performance, video work and photography, choosing those carefully as the fields of her artistic expression in order to question the very medium of sculpture by exploring its transformative potential in the relations matter-space-form-idea. Sanja’s thematic preoccupations are mainly about problematizing the complex functioning of an individual in today’s world, our everyday confrontations with numerous and various forms of social determinations, imperatives, pressures. Dealing more with the emotionally psychological dimension of those relations, the artist proposes and articulates her own views through unpretentious, simplified visual solutions/performances forming them into a kind of metaphores about syndromes, states and processes that characterise the complex global image of the society.

In the period from 2009 to 2014 she was a member of the Third Belgrade association with which she participated in many joint actions: The Warm Place, Breakfast on the Grass, The Big Dream, We Like the Art of Others, etc.

2019. Sanja Latinovic initiates the formation of Group 04, which is a generation of graduated sculptors from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade (2004), her classmates. Their field of interest is based on the position of the artist in the society.
