ABOUT THE ARTIST: Šejla Kamerić was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. She has received widespread acclaim for her poignant intimacy and social commentary. Based on her own experiences, memories and dreams, which were influenced by the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (1992-1995), Kamerić’s work takes us to spaces of displacement and discrimination. The weight of her themes stands in powerful contrast to her individual aesthetics and to her choice of delicate materials. Learn more about the artist and her work at :
