Jasmina Cibic constructs her exhibitions as immersive theatrical installations. The single objects, images, materials, signs, and symbols create a multi-layered narrative. The work raises questions about how states use soft power as culture, architecture, and art to develop and establish their power, their identity, and nationality. The spatial environments function also as a stage for choreographed performances and symbolic actions, which might take place during the exhibition or find their way into fascinating films, to tell the story in a different mode.
For her work as director and filmmaker, she received for 'Pleasure of Expense' in 2020 the B3 BEN Award for 'Best Immersive and Time Based Art'.
Jasmina Cibic studied from 1998 to 2003 at the Academia di Belle Arti in Venice and finished her studies at Goldsmith College in London from 2003 to 2006 with a Master of Fine Arts. Her first institutional exhibition in Germany took place in 2017 at Museum Haus Lange - Haus Esters in Krefeld. 2013 she presented Slovenia at the 55. Venice Biennial.
