Katarina Radovic was born in Belgrade, Serbia. She studied History of Art at the University of Sussex in Brighton, UK in the 1990’s and acquired the BA Degree in Photography from the Academy of Arts ‘BK’ in Belgrade, Serbia, in 2006.
As a free-lance artist she has participated in a number of solo and collective exhibitions and festivals in Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Spain, The Netherlands, France, Egypt, Japan, Senegal, USA, Israel, etc.
She received the Kultur Kontakt artist-in-residence grant in Vienna, Austria, in 2007; the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) grant in 2009 for the project Until Death Do Us Part; and the artist-in-residence grant in Malta by the Fondazzjoni Kreattività in 2019 for the project Palettes.
Her works are in: the Photography Collection EROSION (Lithuania), the TELENOR Collection of Contemporary Art (Serbia), the Museum of the City of Belgrade, the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb (Croatia), the Museum of African Art in Belgrade and the Imago Mundi BENETTON Collection (Italy).
She moves fluidly across photographic fields, trying to trace the link between reality and fiction, the real world and the socially and culturally originated visions of reality. Her photographic work consists of unique researches into identity, (self)-presentation, human relationships and communication, as well as cultural differences, and is often permeated with theatre and humour. She is also interested in design, publishing, translation and curatorial work.
The two major publications of her works are: Until Death Do Us Part, self-published monograph, Belgrade, 2011 and When You’ve Stopped Combing Me, I’ll Stop Hating You, Museum of African Art, Belgrade, 2016.
