Tanja Deman

Tanja Deman (1982) is a young photographer currently based in Split, whose practice is driven by her interest in the perception of space and her relationship to nature. She graduated in sculpture from the Fine Arts Academy of Zagreb in 2006 and works since then with photography, collage, video and public art. First appearing as evocative meditations on urban space and landscape, her projects often deal with the extreme situations that man’s conquest over nature is continuously generating (Fernweh and Site Densification series). Observing recently built legacy or natural sites her work investigates the sociology of space, the psychology of the „room with a view” (Abode of Vacancy, Collective Narratives and Temples of Culture series) and reflects dynamics hidden under the surface of both the built and natural environment.
