A common thread in all of Sandra Lakićević’s works is the perpetual conflict of personal and universal, remembered and forgotten, written and erased. This is perhaps best reflected in the act of erasing as an ever recurring element in her practice. By erasing the narratives that once were, she investigates to what extent our memories and past narratives form our present perception, as well as our perception of the present. From artist’s books to performance to video installations, her creative method is often defined by repetition. Although unrelenting, it is not a testament to her effort so much as it is meant to emphasize the transformation of the medium and the notions of memory and time.
Sandra Lakićević (1990, Kraljevo, Serbia) received her bachelor’s and master’s in painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade in 2015. She continued her education in Belgium where she obtained her second master’s in visual arts from LUCA School of Arts in Brussels in 2019. In addition to numerous group shows and residencies, she has had four solo shows in Brussels, Belgrade, Pančevo and Majdanpek. In 2020 she was one of the finalists of the Dimitrije Bašičević Mangelos Award (the Young Visual Artist Awards program – YVAA).
