Sanela Jahic
Passengers from the Relative to the Absolute
August 25th, 2011

Distilling the essential powers claimed by various modes of creation - painting's living evidence of touch, or the power of the word to remake the past - Jahić creates for herself situations of enhanced mechanical advantage, suspending the painting at a theoretical distance for interrogation and transformation.

Sanela Jahic, (b. 1980, Kranj) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia where she received a BA in Painting. She went on to receive an MFA in Public Art and New Artistic Strategies at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany. Her work has been exhibited in Slovenia, Russia, Germany and Japan.
