Maja Vukoje. On the Edge
In her painting Maja Vukoje explores cultural hybridity and transculturality as basic conditions of our globalized lives. Over various stages of her artistic career, Vukoje has developed a distinct artistic language in which she not only focuses on the mixture and fusion of elements of different cultures as visual motifs. This catalogue is published on the occasion of the artist’s most comprehensive solo show to date at the Belvedere 21 in Vienna. The book will comprise more than two hundred images from the past fifteen years, with an emphasis on her most recent work series. In the latter tropical fruits and so-called colonial goods like coffee and sugar come face to face with symbols of our digitized everyday lives, motifs from popular culture, and iconic works of painterly abstraction.
