Henrjeta Mece’s practice explores issues related to the body, time, place and sense of belonging. Challenged by the world’s state in flux, her artwork references the contemporary experience of travel, mobility, borders, and diasporas. Mece’s artistic process employs reterritorialization as a method to: create images that allude to maps, remap a location outside of geographical systems of organization, and produce a temporary place of belonging. Without using direct biographical material, her multimedia installations focus on materializing trajectories rather than destinations. The artwork itself exists in the process as much as in the object and remains a course in the struggle to be positioned.
Henrjeta Mece is a multidisciplinary artist, curator, writer and educator. She completed her BFA and MFA at Ontario College of Art & Design, Toronto . Mece is the recipient of numerous awards including, Vtape Fellowship, Canada Millennium Excellence Award, and various Ontario Arts Council grants. Mece’s artwork and curatorial projects have been exhibited in venues including, Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art, 2011; Banff Centre of the Arts 2009-2010; Tirana Institute for Contemporary Art, 2012 and Zweigstelle Gallery, Berlin, 2012.

Saša Tkačenko’s work examines his attitude toward the social phenomena that affect the environment in which he works and lives. Starting from the visual manifestations, symbols and representations of the occurrences that he aims to understand and analyze by deploying the method of reduction of formal language, he translates the given phenomena into reduced images, simultaneously playing with their content and given meanings. Through sculpture, installation and video he then develops reduced visual settings in a tense dialogue with the space and creates situations for the observer to experience the uncertainties of his persistent reexaminations of symptoms that strongly affect his everyday realities.
Saša Tkačenko (born 1979) is a visual artist based in Belgrade. He holds an M.A. in Sculpture from Belgrade University of Arts, Faculty of Applied Arts. Saša participated in many group, as well as solo shows internationally and locally including the Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade; Hochschule für bildende Künste, Hamburg; Garaj, Istanbul; Museo d’Arte Contemporanea del Castello di Rivoli; PerAspera Festival, Bologna; Lukas Feichtner Gallery, Vienna and Lage Egal, Berlin.
