Zhana Ivanova, 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.
