Moving Image and Memory: Tackling Identity Questions through Music

Jelena Juresa in Conversation with Pieter Vermeulen

During this KASK lecture, the focus of the conversation between Jelena Juresa and Pieter Vermeulen is on the collision of past and present, personal and collective, image and narrative in artistic practice and in communication with the spectator. At the core of the talk will be three of Juresa’s video/film pieces in which music is used as a distinctive narrative apparatus for tackling identity questions.

Jelena Juresa has been extensively working with the questions of national identity, politics of memory and oblivion through the media of photography, video and text. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions internationally, including Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz; National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan; Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina, Novi Sad. As the Jackman Goldwasser resident artist in 2015, in collaboration with the Hyde Park Art Center at Chicago, she is developing a new art project, tackling the questions and relations of public art – capitalism – tourism – copyright, as well as production of male and female histories within this context. Juresa is currently a PhD researcher at Ghent University, Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, Research centre S:PAM (Studies in Performing Arts & Media) and KASK Conservatorium.

Pieter Vermeulen is an independent curator and researcher, course director & lecturer at the Master of Research in Art & Design at St Lucas University College in Antwerp (BE), research assistant at Ghent University (S:PAM – Studies in Performing Arts & Media) and freelance curator and art critic.
