Jelena Micić’ special interest lies in the investigation of different cultural and socio-political aspects of color and color systems. Most of her artistic practice includes field work and research-based collecting of visual information. Appropriating the everyday, her work often presupposes chosen patterns of human behavior and acts accompanying their presence. Recently banned disposable plastic is the raw material for Micić’ works presented at viennacontemporary 2021 by Galerie3.
