Currently based between London and Ljubljana, Jasmina Cibic is one of a new generation of Slovenian artists whose practice, although acutely conscious of a specific national political, cultural and artistic lineage creates a very distinctive language of its own. Whilst she clearly shares and addresses some of the same theoretical and political concerns present in the work of other artists from a post-communist Europe, Cibic operates within a global rather than nationalized discourse. Her work is generally site and context specific, performative in nature and employs a range of activity, media and theatrical tactics to redefine or reconsider an existent environment or space.
Jasmina Cibic’s recent projects and exhibitions include: 30th Biennial of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana, For our Economy and Culture; the Slovenian pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennial; U3-7TH Triennial of Contemporary Art, Museum of Contemporary Art Ljubljana; DistURBANces/LandEscape,
Musée national d'Histoire et d'Art, Luxembourg; Borderline, Joanneums Museum Graz; Bus-Tops, a London 2012 Cultural Olympiad project, London; The Object of the Spectacle, Galerija Škuc, Ljubljana; The Secret of the Ninth Planet, California College of the Arts, San Francisco; Museum on the Street, Museum of Modern Art Ljubljana; Percorsi d’Arte, Museum of Modern Art, Bologna and Tourists Welcome, Ljubljana International Airport. She is the recipient of many awards including Bevilacqua la Masa, Trend Award for outstanding achievements in visual art in Slovenia and a nominee for Premio Furla and Vordemberge-Gildewart Award. Her upcoming exhibitions include October Salon in Belgrade and Kassel Film Festival.
