Jana Žufić
Artist - Crotia

withering wind’s wake –
unveiling stars beyond stars
beyond bare branches
__

Born on December 27, 1978 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, Jana Žufić is a multimedia artist and
transdisciplinary experimenter. Her fascination with “the poetics of orderly chaos”, as she calls it, is reflected in her works. She lives in Croatia, between Poreč – a small town on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula – and the capital Zagreb – home of the Zagreb School of Animation and the New Tendencies*, which both played an important role in her formation. Her main field of interest lies at the intersection of new media, (animated) cinema and contemporary art. She worships Mother Nature, thus enjoying outdoor activities such as swimming or hiking, but also engaging in indoor yoga practice on an almost daily basis. She started writing haiku in January 2012, at the turning point of a spiritual crisis.  [*Pictured in front of Vjenceslav Richter's Systemic Sculpture, Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb, Croatia]
