Aleksandra Domanović works with sculpture, video and born-digital content, shedding light on the meaning of images and information that shift according to different contexts and historical weights. Her recent projects explore the pioneering discoveries of women scientists and depictions of gender in science fiction. Her mining of the social and political histories of the former Yugoslavia has become a useful tool for interpreting the current European situation.
Domanović’s work has been presented in major solo exhibitions, including Untitled (In My Feelings), MOCA Cleveland, US (2018); Kalbträgerin, Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn, Germany (2017); Votives, Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, UK (2017); Bulls Without Horns, Tanya Leighton, Berlin (2016); Mother of This Domain, Oakville Galleries, Canada (2016); and Aleksandra Domanović, Kunsthalle Basel (2012). Her work has also been featured in biennials and other group exhibitions, such as the V—A—C Foundation exhibition, 58th Venice Biennale (2019); Belgrade Biennial (2018); Manifesta 11, Zurich (2016); and Glasgow International (2014).
Among her numerous awards are the Arnaldo Pomodoro Sculpture Prize (5th edition), Milan (2018); ars viva Prize 2014/15, Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft im BDI, Berlin (2014–2015); Die Kulturverwaltung des Berliner Senats scholarship (2014); and a Rhizome Commission, Rhizome at the New Museum, New York (2009).
Domanović contributed to vvork.com, a contemporary art blog and exhibition platform that was a key resource for artists and curators around the world (2006–2012). She studied design at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and the University of Applied Arts, Vienna.
Born in 1981 in Novi Sad, the former Yugoslavia, Domanović currently lives and works in Berlin.
