Šejla Kamerić

»Zum Einstieg hier ein Zitat. Sant sita vellest optas volorenat quibus alutiam.«

— Šejla Kamerić

ABOUT

Šejla Kamerić works with various media such as film, photography, objects or drawings. The all-pervading element in her work are her – often uneasy – memories. She is using them as a power source by sharpening the focus of the present through the burden past. Based on her own experiences, memories and dreams, her work takes us to glocal spaces of displacement and discrimination.

The sadness and beauty, hope and pain that shines out of her works are part of the stories we share. The weight of her themes stands in powerful contrast to her individual aesthetics and to her choice of delicate materials.
