Ivana Mirchevska (b.1992, Skopje) is a visual artist and researcher whose practice is rooted in time based media, visual anthropology, memory studies and painting. Experimenting with the hybridizing genre of documentary, she is interested in how the technologies of vision create subjects and subjectivities. More in particular, she researches the ambivalence of the image in re/presenting the realities of labor, gender, media, surveillance, while looking for the aesthetic potential of the individual and collective body to generate viable propositions and strategies. Framed with the device of the ‘essayistic’ practice her work spans between moving images, archives and installations. Ivana obtained her MFA degree at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, Italy. She has participated at ENGAGE- Public School for Social Engagement in Artistic Research, curated by Viafarini, in Milan, Italy; Fuori Visioni 3 - Festival dell’arte contemporanea, Museo Civico di Storia Naturale, Piacenza, Italy (2017); the Multimedia Festival “Underground is easier to breathe III”, Skopje, as well as Biennial of Young Artists, Museum of Contemporary Art, Skopje (2018).
