Nemanja Cvijanović, photo: Ibro Hasanović, 2012.

Nemanja Cvijanović was born in 1972 in Rijeka (Croatia), where he still lives and works.

In his artwork Nemanja Cvijanović uses almost all the media and techniques of visual and performing arts. His work is based on conceptual / post-conceptual / setting and is developed through the practice of collective performance, the performance of interactive installations and facilities, video production and multimedia projects, painting, photography, and sound works.

His focus of interest is questioning and uncovering the mechanisms of production, manipulation and consumption of meaning in post-modern culture that is based on a critical attitude towards the ideological and aesthetic values of modernist culture and society. His criticism is manifested in the works of art based on the structural and semantic order of pre-existing works, historical events or phenomena, by means of mimesis and / or simulation as well as the use of visual meta-language. Cvijanović lucidly links past and present, parallel realities of different social systems and different artistic strategies.
