Ana Prvački

headshotIn her videos, services, concoctions and drawings Ana Prvački uses a gently pedagogical and comedic approach in an attempt to reconcile etiquette and erotics.

Her work has been included in many international exhibitions including 14th Istanbul Biennial SALTWATER: A Theory of Thought Forms, Istanbul Turkey, Contour Biennial in Mechelen Belgium, dOCUMENTA 13, Sydney Biennial 2007, Singapore Biennial 2006, and the Turin Triennale 2005.

Solo exhibitions and projects include the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston; Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Turin; Institute of Contemporary Arts, Singapore and 1301PE Gallery, Los Angeles. 

Prvački has produced a series of ideas catalogues (Ananatural Production catalogues) with the intention of filing and documenting her imagination. Some of the thoughts have been realized as performances, such as “Tent, Quartet, bows and elbows” and “The leap of faith”. Her new catalogue of ideas “Finding comfort in an uncomfortable imagination” is published by ICA Singapore.
