Biography


Emir Šehanović is interested in today’s world that has gone to pieces as the literal sediment of human activity. He brings objects to an (after)life, or to the point in which they start to resemble life. Much of his work brings together parts of different bodies, different types of hybrids of us and our image. Maintaining that the body is fundamentally plastic and that corporeal identity is constituted by a conspiracy of sensations, he pursues the question of how the body fits, or fails to fit into its aesthetic environments.

Emir Šehanović (b. 1981, Bosnia) lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia. Outside of the region, he has shown his work in the context of solo and group shows at Jeune Création, Les Beaux-Arts de Paris (2018), AQB Project Space Budapest (2018), Ultrastudio Los Angeles (2018), Gallery Weekend Berlin (2015), Athens Video Art Festival (2013) among others, and took part in Liste Art Fair (2015), Parallel Vienna, ArtGeneve (2018), Vienna Contemporary, ArtGeneve (2019). Šehanović has recently been selected as part of 100 Sculptors of Tomorrow, published by Thames and Hudson.
