Denis Šehić


Denis Šehić, a graduate of the Academy of Visual Arts – AVA, works in visual arts, poetry, prose and theater. He has participated in a number of group exhibitions over the last five years and is the author and director of the play Birds at the GLEJ Theater, 2014. His installation Lullaby for Sophia is an allusion to Sophia, the name of a military operation to protect the EU’s external borders. The operation, however, is named after a girl born on one of these smuggling ships, and evokes feelings of insecurity and reminds us how unprepared we are for the current situation and how senseless is our attitude to the tragedy we are watching from the armchairs in our living rooms.
