Katarina Zdjelar is a Belgrade-born artist based in Rotterdam. Katarina graduated from the University of Arts in Belgrade and received an MFA from the Piet Zwart Institute of the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Her audiovisual works focus on the performative powers of speech with a particular focus on the limits of language, on its vulnerability and malleability. Zdjelar’s videos work as some form of backstage to the ideological imaginary of these changing, dynamic, and accelerated times of ours. She consistently deals with alternative chrono-geographies, denouncing the flaws of the ideological acceleration, while unearthing its unrepresented realms.
Her practice consists of working with moving image, sound, performances, book projects, and creating different platforms for speculation and exchange. Zdjelar’s work has appeared in exhibitions and film festivals across Europe, the US and the UK.
