Julija Zaharijević

Julija Zaharijević (b. 1991, Belgrade), is a Vienna-Berlin based artist who deals with questions of reality— what constitutes it, and what takes for it to collapse into abstraction. She is interested in objects with symbolic value and how their visual appearances hint at ways to uncover the basis of their canonization, often rooted in the discourse shaped by the West and/or the patriarchy. She is curious about performativity, optical illusions, history of painting and modernism. Zaharijević works in various media, such as painting, sculpture and text.
