Recently I immigrated, therefore I am overwhelmed with impressions of a new surroundings. Still, I fill the strong urge to fully overcome mixed feelings towards my homeland and my previous life.

Vladislava Savic was born in Yugoslavia, Communist Utopia that was established after World War II. When she was still a kid, her homeland was violently disassembled into a small pieces, six “independent” countries that are still struggling to establish their own identity.
Her hometown is located at 43°51′34″N 19°50′42″. A place where opposites meet and clash: East vs. West — Communism vs. Capitalism , conflicting political beliefs and social systems.
The constant change and teetering stability of Vladislava’s physical surroundings shaped her as an artist, feeding her curiosity. Consequently, she has learned to create a “state” of her own. Her work is a living paradox, which is invaluable in today’s modern polarity.
She captures her universe on canvases, collages, and drawings — all of which contain buildings from her close, physical surroundings. Real space architecture is melted into her own perception of reality. Currently lives and works in Zürich.
