Biography


Emir Šehanović was born in 1981 in Tuzla, Bosnia & Herzegovina. Through his practice, Šehanović explores superstition, the occult and symbolic meaning, rooted in the artist’s childhood experiences and the local tradition of his native Bosnia. These themes migrate towards a reflection on our collective unconsciousness, on a broader level. Embracing repetition in his daily life and work, Šehanović uses the exhibition to pursue one-of-a-kind experiences that are meant to be shared between himself and the viewers, each of whom will have their own memories and associations with which to affiliate the artist’s body of work. His works have been shown in New York, Tokyo, Paris, Berlin, Athens, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Vienna, Sofia, Belgrade, Stuttgart, Heilbronn and many places in the south-east European region. Šehanović has recently been selected as part of 100 Sculptors of Tomorrow, to be published by Thames and Hudson.
