Katarina Juričić 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, Katarina studies the potential of photography to visualise the equally intangible, but more mysterious concept of human mind.
In this time, when we engage with the world from the surface of our screens which in turn simplifies and dematerialises our experience of the world, Katarina’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, colours, materials and motifs from the photographic work expand into the space and create a living image.
Katarina Juričić born in 1994, Zagreb HR, is currently based in-between The Hague and Zagreb. After getting her BA degree in Journalism in Zagreb, she moved to the Netherlands to further her artistic practice, where she graduated in 2019 from the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague, and studied Cinema, televisione e produzione multimediale via the Erasmus exchange program at Università di Bologna IT. In addition she followed internships at Felicity Hammond and Black Tower Project Space in London UK.
