About the artist

Adrijana Gvozdenović (1986, Montenegro) collects and annotates symptomatic artistic practices that recognise their anxiety as a prerequisite state for criticality. Last year she developed a card-reading publication 7 anxieties and the world, performed at FairShare: self-publishing as an artistic practice (CIAP Hasselt), during the Victories over the suns in Brussels, for he Hub – Between the iliac crest & the pubic bone (GMK Zagreb) and at the Pink House in Antwerp. Her solo exhibition Razstava was produced by her mother and a cake company for the Contemporary Art Centre of Montenegro (2017).

With Kristina Gvozdenović, they wrote a report "We are following your great example," for the exhibition "Drugarice - women's movement in Montenegro 1943 - 1953" (National Museum of Montenegro, 2017), which was also published in Strange Attractors (ed Nomaduma R. Masilela, X Berlin Biennale). During 2019, she was a researcher at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. From 2017 - 2020, she was part of a.pass, a collective environment for artistic research in Brussels. Since 2013, she has been working free-lance as a technical support for the production of museum exhibitions. In parallel with these activities, since 2015, she is working for the artists association Institute of Contemporary Art in Montenegro.
