gordana olujic

Gordana Olujic graduated at the Textile Department of the Faculty for Applied Arts in Belgrade in 1985. She become a member of ULUPUDS in 1986 and had been living and working in Toronto since 1988. She exhibited her work in numerous solo and group shows in Canada, Serbia, Bosnia, Bulgaria, France, Lithuania and USA. In 2007 she participated in the 12th International Triennial of Tapestry in Lodz, Poland, at the invitation of the selector for Serbia. Gordana took part in international workshops (colonies) "Parchment Rtanj" (Rtanj 2011), "35th Sopocani Gatherings" (Novi Pazar 2010) and Art Textiles (Sremski Karlovci 2008). She is the recipient of many grants and awards. Her work is represented in the permanent collections of Cambridge Galleries, Cambridge, Canada; Central Museum of Textiles, Lodz, Poland; Atelier 61, Novi Sad and Cultural Centre of Novi Pazar, Serbia. Gordana's textile based mixed media work is inspired by both personal history and wider historical and civilizational references. It often explores the opposites (strength and frailty, trust and betrayal…), using expressive qualities of various materials (textiles, metal, natural elements). Her work has a strong narrative character and often uses words and statements, sometimes bi-lingual (English and Serbian), refl ecting bilingualism in her life and belonging to two different cultures.
