Elmedin Žunić works across a wide range of media, encompassing installation, photography, drawing and video. Over the past 13 years he has been actively involved in both the art scene of Australia as well as those abroad; exhibiting in South Africa, South America, Kurdistan and Norway. Philosophy forms a strong aspect of Žunić’s conceptual framework, whose work often refers to philosophies that address alienation, identity and existentialism.
The visual discourse is recurrently charged with issues of social and political unrest and expatriation – all of which the artist has personal connections to – having grown up during the conflict that consumed former Yugoslavia.
Žunić currently resides in Melbourne where he is undertaking his doctorate at Victorian College of the Arts. His research investigates ways contemporary art negotiates history and memory, particularly historical trauma, through the case example of the conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina between the years 1992-1995 and its aftermath.
