Nika Radić

was born in Zagreb, and has, apart from her hometown, lived in London, Toronto, Milan, Vienna and Berlin. Not fully belonging to one context and being used to translating from different languages, but also her own and other people’s experiences, she reflects this experience in her art as well. She studied sculpture at the art academy in Zagreb and art history at the university in Vienna which was also a way to understand two different approaches to art. She has also written on the subject and her texts were published internationally.
