Ivana Papić (b. 1987) is a Croatian plant based artist in Berlin. Using photography, drawings, sound and objects, she builds layered installations designed to encourage audience interaction. Through her practice Papić explores the contemporary meaning of the concepts of migration, identity and belonging. Currently, she is working between Berlin and Croatia on the "Wild walnut" (lat. Ailanthus altissima), an ongoing project about her female heritage from the Dalmatian Hinterland. 

 

From the Fine Arts Academy of the University of Split she holds MA in conservation and restoration. In 2022, she graduated (postgraduate MA) at the Institute for Art in Context at the Udk - Universität der Künste Berlin, where she worked on several participatory, artistic-research and educational projects. She is a member of HULU - Croatian association of visual artists, Cine Club Split and bbk e.V. - professional association of visual artists of Berlin.
