SANJA PUPOVAC IS AN ARTIST BORN IN ZADAR, EX-JUGOSLAVIJA IN 1983. SHE LIVES AND WORKS IN MILANO.

THE THEMES THAT CHARGE HER WORK ARE: THE INTIMACY OF THE INTERNET, POETRY AND LANGUAGE OF THE MILLENNIALS, HUMOR AS A REVEALER OF CONTEMPORANEITY, THE MEMORY OF ART, ARCHITECTURE AFTER ARCHITECTURE, MISE-EN-SCENE, RELIGIOUS AESTHETIC.

SHE STUDIED AT THE POLITECNICO DI MILANO, WHERE SHE OCCASIONALLY TEACHES, SHE TRIES TO FORGET HER ARCHITECTURAL APPROACH AT LEAST IN PART. HER WORK CAN BE DIVIDED IN TWO CATEGORIES, THE FIRST IS THE PRESENCE OF INTERNET, THE SECOND IS ITS ABSENCE.

AN ON/OFF SWITCH OF AN ALTERNATIVE REALITY. HER PHOTOGRAPHIC WORK RESEMBLES PERFORMANCE FOR ITS APPROACH AND FOR THE THEATRICAL RESULT. SHE IS WORKING ON THE POST PRODUCTION OF HER FIRST FEATURE FILM “INTERNET” COMPOSED ALMOST ENTIRELY OF VISUAL AND AUDIO CHATS.

HER CAREER BEGINS IN THE DESIGN FIELD AND PROGRESSIVELY CROSSES OVER TO ART.
