Tina Gverović - BA Painting Lecturer
Tina Gverović works with installation, drawing, painting, sound, text and video.
Her installations are developed as immersive and disorientating sites which often revolve around drawing and painting.
In her work Gverović engages with space, territory and identity, and considers how these concepts are bound to imagination. She reworks the way she understands the political and the poetic, in unexpected areas and without direct confrontation.
Gverović completed a doctorate in Visual Arts at Middlesex University. Her research investigated issues of cultural and national identity, forms of memoralising, belonging, conflict and loss. One of the questions that she is interested in is how can a work have both a strong sense of loss and a strong sense of connection to a place?
Her work is regularly exhibited nationally and internationally. She has shown at the Suzhou Biennial (China), Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik (Croatia), Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade (Serbia), Busan Biennial (Korea) Tate Modern and Tate Britain (both London).
She represented Croatia at the 57th Venice Biennale with the installation Phantom Trades: Sea of People at the Croatian Pavilion, and she is nominated for the Art Prize Zürich 2018.
