Ivana Milev (1987 RS)

About

“Ivana Milev works with a great of self-discipline. She is a sculptor with the mind of an engineer. She “weaves” an endless structure with her dexterous hands and is fascinated with its spatial progression.

 She confronts herself with a serious problem or task: to be impeccably accurate, because she wants her work to be “technically perfect” in terms of design. Her obsession with structure is what puzzles when one observes her sculptures, because it is difficult to determine whether they have been created by a machine or a human hand.

Transparency of the sculptures can be deceiving. They might seem to be fragile forms that can break down just by looking at them, let alone by touching them. It makes us come very close to the sculpture in order to look carefully at the combinations of elements that make the whole.

The emblematic meaning of Ivana’s work does not lie exclusively in the final product. It lies also in the amount of time invested in creating it. A very long period of creating inevitably poetizes the final structure. There is something sublime in one’s decision to dedicate almost an unlimited amount of time to someone or something with the aim of getting everything right.” Milan Nasković.
