Intermedia artist Mila Panic explores social cultural aspects of societies in quick transformation.
Mila Panic's statement: “Considering the nature of my work where the movement, migration, and notion of home always overlap, I can say I am interested in the comfort and discomfort of living and creating in-between places and contexts and their relations. For several years I started to be interested in the landscape and our mental/bodily relation to it. How does our mind learn to behave within and perceive a landscape? What influence these perceptions and in which way? What narratives can contemporary art practice add to a remapping of the certain landscape?”
