Jelena Fuzinato

Jelena Fuzinato (b.Prnjavor, Bosnia and Herzegovina 1984) works in drawing and installation media to explore authoritarian relations inside institutions such as family, schools, museums and states. The question of how laws, rules and power construct social norms and influence the behaviour, knowledge and skills of people, has been the focus of her work in recent years. Fuzinato deals with real events but is using speculation and fiction in their treatment and presentation. The works and methods that she chooses are frequently contraposition from the central narratives and often talk about marginal social positions of things and beings. Her layered approach brings together existing references and false information to generate new metaphorical fabrication. She lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
