Jenny Gerow, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at BRIC joins Slovakian artist Katarína Hrušková and Montenegrin artist Siniša Radulović, Young Visual Artist Awardees, to discuss their unique views on occupying space through their work in photography and video. Katarína Hrušková’s work in photography and spoken word translates the body’s affective relationship to space by relating an intimacy to the inanimate and inconspicuous. Siniša Radulović’s collaged videos and photography appropriate images and text to outline the contested borders of one’s homeland and selfhood.
