Ivana portrait Maansi Jain.jpg

I am a multimedia artist and a researcher, a storyteller, born in 1987 in Split Croatia. Employing a participation-based approach to my art, I use photography and biographical interviews, which I subsequently assemble in the manner of a collage into a layered sound installation designed to encourage observers to interact and move through it. Sound, Story, and Space form the building blocks of my work. The collection of stories from immigrant workers and often woman are dealing with the topics of identity, immigration, belonging and memory.


From the Fine Arts Academy of the University of Split (Croatia) I hold MA in conservation and restoration. In 2022, I graduated (postgraduate MA) at the Institute for Art in Context at the Universität der Künste Berlin, where I worked on several participatory, artistic-research and educational projects. I´m a part of the WerkStadt atelier complex in Berlin and a member of the bbk Berlin e.V. - professional association of visual artists Berlin, HULU - Croatian association of visual artists and the Cine club Split.
