An Interview with Biljana Popovic

Newly published on online art platform Contemporary HUM, arts writer Eleanor Woodhouse interviews artist and designer Biljana Popovic on her 12-month Visual Arts Residency at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, and her wider practice. Popovic’s previous work as a commercial designer informs her current visual arts practice by integrating elements of interior design and architecture into her work.

‘Popovic’s work speaks to the delight and curiosity that she has of the world. Walking through slanted, mirrored sliding doors, or gazing upon kitchen sinks resplendent in glossy racing-stripes, we are all children again, re-learning the visual and textural codes which comprise the physical reality of our public environments.’ – Eleanor Woodhouse. Read the essay in full here on HUM.
