The solo exhibition by Hana Miletić at Apoteka – Space for Contemporary Art, devised as a temporary site specific installation is developed as an artistic gesture that activates the exhibition space. New meanings, relations and vistas unfold by our movements through the gallery space. Hana Miletić’ artistic practice comprises of different media and materials, such as photography, textile and weaving, objects and installations. In her works she explores contexts inscribed by individual and collective processes of cultural and artistic production. Using textile and weaving as her primary material and technique, the soft and transparent surfaces she creates become sites of representing and documenting different conditions, relations and positions, which explore notions of fragility and precarity, gestures of „care and repair“, disappearance and possible reconfigurations.
Hana Miletić, born in Zagreb (1982), lives and works in Brussels.
Her work has been exhibited internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Recently WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels presented her first big institutional solo exhibition (2018). She recently took part in group exhibitions at the 13th Sharjah Biennial (2017), the contemporary art museum S.M.A.K., Ghent (2018-2019), and Metro Pictures, New York (2019). She was awarded the BOZAR Prize in the framework of The Young Belgian Art Prize (2015).
The exhibition by Hana Miletić has been realized within the framework of the ongoing perennial program cycle Temporary Encounters: This is (not) a museum. The exhibitions and the artistic and curatorial research within Temporary Encounters: This is (not) a museum have been ongoing since 2014 and are dedicated to redefining and unfolding a series of relations: they question social, institutional and spatial relations, as well as interactions between objects and subjects, relations within the system of art, the gallery space, the institutional framework and working conditions.
