ARTIST NOMINATED BY Elena Filipovic
Zhana Ivanova (1977, Ruse), born in Bulgaria, studied at the Queen Mary University College, London and at DasArts, Amsterdam. Ivanova produces works in the field of performance and time-based arts. These often reflect on the classifications and constructs of everyday reality. Such systems are customised, resulting in formal and rule-governed environments as frameworks for containing her subjects. Zhana Ivanova’s practice focuses on rearranging and reconfiguring daily patterns and systems to which we have grown accustomed.
