2009 – 2014 Member of Independent Artistic Association Third Belgrade
Sanja Latinović (Serbia, 1983) graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Department of Sculpture. In 2016 she finished Master Studies for Performance Art at HKB, Berne, Switzerland. Although a sculptor by vocation, Sanja focuses her work mainly on performance, video work and photography, choosing carefully those fields for her artistic research and expression in order to question the very medium of sculpture by exploring its transformative potential in the relations matter-space-form-idea. Sanja’s thematic preoccupations are mainly about thematizing and problematizing the multilayerd and complex functioning of an individual in today’s world, our everyday confrontations with numerous and various forms of social determinations, imperatives, pressures. Dealing more with the emotionally psychological dimension of those relations, the artist proposes and articulates her own views through unpretentious, simplified visual solutions/performances forming them into a kind of metaphores about syndromes, states and processes that characterise the tense global image of the society.
Sanja’s engagements in the period from 2009 to 2014 include her participation within collective Third Belgrade through many joint actions and performances (The Warm Place, Breakfast on the Grass, The Big Dream, We Like the Art of Others, etc) and in 2019. she initiates the formation of the Group 04, which gathered her classmates from the Department of Sculpture at Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade. The Group 04 is focusing their interests and activities on the position of the artist in the today society and especially in the local socio-cultural context.
She is represented by the NGVU gallery in Belgrade and Catinca Tabacaru gallery in Timisoara.
