Marta Jovanovic — Sélysette
Past: January 5 → February 24, 2013
Throughout her multimedia works, Marta Jovanovic constructs scenarios in which she interrogates identity, beauty and sexuality. Whether through performance, drawing or photography, her interdisciplinary practice provokes a reconsideration of the dictates of culture and the construction of sexual identity.
Appropriating the instantly recognizable characteristics of fashion mediums, her works reveal the limitations of the traditional canon of beauty while drawing attention to the fluidity of gender.
Her performances, videos and photographs are an invitation to disregard conventional notions of beauty and embrace a more democratic vision of representation, free from all constraints.
Belgrade born (1978), Marta Jovanovic lives and works between London, New York and Rome.
