Bio
Exhibitions

Milica Tomić was born in Belgrade in 1960, where she lives and works. Her artistic research is overtly political, and aimed on one hand at underlining the importance of historical memory, and on the other at opening up a reflection on themes that touch current issues – from national identity to violence and civil responsibility, from the right to self-determination to the construction of reality on behalf of the media. In the well-known video I am Milica Tomić (1988-89), she explores the link between individual and collective identity: revolving on a pedestal, the artist states her name in 64 different languages her belonging to just as many different ethnic groups. Her face remains calm and impassive but her body is slowly lacerated by invisible whiplashes which little by little cover her with wounds.

The artist has taken part in two editions of the Venice Biennale and has presented her works in numerous exhibitions, including at the Kunsthalle in Vienna, at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
