Maja Sofronac

born in 1981. She lives and works in Montenegro. Maja about her work: “Every man, in greater or lesser extent, goes through the experience of individuation – a spiritual maturation and the attainment of spiritual wholeness, and in my vision it is the transformation of an impersonal man from the crowd into the self-conscious and realised man. Therefore, the scene in my works is a scene of a man walking trough his life, surrounded not only with other people and relationships with them, but also with technology as a condensed experience of humanity which become a part of a today’s man. I am interested in the totality of existence of man – the experience of birth, the experience of life, psychophysical nature, the complexity of the body, layers of psyche, incomprehensible life energy, the experience of disappearing, etc. I am interested in a modern, contemporary man, i.e. universal man, future man. I am interested in everything that makes a man.“
