press release

Danica Dakić, born in 1962, lives and works in Sarajevo and Düsseldorf. She creates sculptural installations, site-specific video projections, and public architectural sound projects to investigate the corporal and global aspects of identity and language, as well as the tensions that arise between collective and individual experiences. From her own experience as a migrant, Danica Dakić deals with construction of identity and belonging through social change, the process of globalization and war.

Recordings for the 3-channel video projection TRIPTYCHON were produced in 2007 in the German Wallpaper Museum in Kassel, in collaboration with young people from a local group of separated, under-age refugees who live together in a shared accommodation project. Cast: Abdullah Jamali, Robel Mesgena and Dju Anh Nguyen. Director of photography Egbert Trogemann, editing Amra Bakšić Čamo, sound design Bojan Vuletić.
