Katarina Popovic- ketworks is a storyteller and media artist. Her works explore the process of reintegrating humans (to their imminent) nature through art and technology. She looks at how humans and non-humans interface and reveal their deep and often – invisible connections. Last two years, she is focused on silent witnesses – natural elements and objects that are given a voice through electronics and software. ketworks is interested in how natural and cultural history can be experienced deeply rather than just – seen or read about. She is interested in creating an enhanced empathic interaction with natural objects that has the potential to change you and your relation to them. Ever inspired by mother nature, simplicity, and intimacy in works by Olafur Eliasson, Andy Goldsworthy, and Wolfgang Laib, ketworks’ works explore how revealing the inter-connectedness can wake our response-ability up from the maladies of the Anthropocene. She is interested in our ability and activity that will create other versions of what currently looks like the 6th extinction.
From 2010. her works were exhibited in Serbia, Slovenia, and the UK. She regularly exhibits with the Nature&Art group. ketworks was born in Serbia, currently based in London (from October – in Istanbul), and is open to artistic invitations around the world.
