Info

Driven by the strength of the women and their views on the world, Sabina collects polyphony of expat and immigrant women's voices talking about the notion of belonging to a place. Women of different backgrounds, race, profession and age, are all sharing one common place, the place of looking for a place.

bio

Sabina Mikelic (1981) is een multimedia-kunstenaar en filmmaker uit Kroatië, gevestigd in Nijmegen sinds 2016. Sabina onderzoekt onderwerpen als familie, identiteit, levensovertuiging en sociale interactie, door de aanwezigheid van een camera. Daarnaast gebruikt ze verschillende media, afwisselend van klassieke tekeningen tot fotografie, installaties, video, gedocumenteerde performances en film. Het werk van Sabina focust zich op haar directe omgeving, de mens en de relatie met geschiedenis, familie, thuis, omgeving en natuur.

Ze heeft inmiddels veel nationale en internationale tentoonstellingen gehad  in onder andere Eye Film Museum, T-com MSU, Transform, Sofia, VIG - Special invitation, film vertoningen (Days of Croatian Film, Liburnia Film Festival / Award for the best Regional Film 2014, Etnofilm Rovinj / Award for the special Contribution to Ethnographic film 2013). Momenteel werk ze aan een experimentele film.

project

Driven by the strength of the women and their views on the world, Sabina collects polyphony of expat and immigrant women's voices talking aboutthe notion of belonging to a place. Women of different backgrounds, race, profession and age, are all sharing one common place, the place of looking for a place. In her investigation about the sense of belonging to a place, Sabina and 6 other female collaborators are taking you to the places from their motherlands, guiding you with their voices through the path of their subjectivity. Nature and urban landscapes reveal different meanings and levels of connection to a physical place.

In the second stage of inquiry the women visit their new found places of belonging in Nijmegen, and by doing so, they are creating a new, intimate map of Nijmegen by sharing their inner viewpoints about the locations, as if revealing their inner personal landscapes on top of the physical ones. By visiting the projects webpage, you can travel with them to their homelands  and you can go on a tour through Nijmegen. You can, as well, read short texts written by women (protagonist and collaborators) – personal, philosophical, anthropological, each of which is charting a path on a map where the search for belonging creates bonds and new connection. Within the exhibition there will be an open live event where Sabina will talk about the process and theme of belonging with her collaborators. That even will be open to public for joining.
