Jasmina Cibic (b. Ljubljana 1979) works in performance, installation and film, employing a range of activity, media and theatrical tactics to redefine or reconsider a specific ideological formation and its framing devices such as art and architecture. Her work draws a parallel between the construction of national culture and its use value for political aims, encouraging the viewer to consider the timelessness of psychological and soft power mechanisms that authoritarian structures utilise in their own reinsertion and reinvention.
Jasmina represented Slovenia at the 55th Venice Biennial with her project “For Our Economy and Culture”.
Her recent exhibitions include solo shows at MSU Zagreb, MSU Belgrade, MSUV Novi Sad, MGLC Ljubljana and Ludwig Museum Budapest along with group exhibitions at La Panacee Montpellier, City Gallery Wellington, MSUM Ljubljana, MNHA Luxembourg, Joanneum Museum Graz and California College of the Arts. Cibic’s films have recently been screened at Pula Film Festival, HKW Berlin, CCA Laznia, Les Rencontres Internationales Paris; Dokfest Kassel and Copenhagen International Documentary Festival.
Cibic’s upcoming exhibitions include Esker Foundation Calgary, Hessel Museum New York, Pera Museum Istanbul, Crawford Art Gallery Cork and DHC Art Montreal.
