Lidija Delić

Lidija Delić’s artistic practice is conceptually and structurally based on an intermedia research of the connections and relationships between internal mental processes and the spaces that surround them. The starting point of this approach is the idea that we cannot understand the world around us as a system of pre-defined objects and concepts that we then rationally choose, but as a dense network of unfinished processes, in which the stability of things is only a reflection of the stability of their images. Her works open to multiple perspectives and interpretations, introducing the observer to a permeable, layered world that does not accept to be reduced to clear and defined boundaries.
*1986, Montenegro
