Alias of Jasmina Sevic, a researcher and author for Widewalls. She graduated from the Faculty of Political Science (Department for Journalism) in Belgrade in 2013.

My work is centered around the fragility of identity, and the role that photography plays in our ability to remember and create a self-image. I choose photography and video as a means of understanding and reckoning with a world flooded with images.

Embedded in the photographs is a level of anxiety around being seen, or a fear of disappearing that has been enhanced by technological accessibility, consumer culture and the constant absorption of images. In questioning how we decipher the world, absorb influences and reveal ourselves, I create images where identity is increasingly in flux – varyingly disappearing, fracturing, or grossly accumulating.

Much of my work involves simulated spaces, often domestic ones, referencing Jung’s idea that one’s house is a representation of their psyche. Using staged environments, studio lighting, and saturated color, I allude to familiar visual cues of advertising that are embedded in our collective unconscious.

I use myself as a model to experience each of the scenarios I create as well as in some cases the claustrophobia of aligning perfectly within them.
