Volatile Relations

Lani Knezevic


04 July 2024–04 August 2024

Volatile Relations is developed from Knezevic’s 2023 text work, I am young so I don’t think about my death (that much). Borrowing the already confessional narrative, the work is further personalised through spoken word. Diaristic but unmonumental clips from everyday life play picture in picture with pop culture references, from Spider-Man to True Blood. The artist recalls childhood memories as fragmented anecdotes in an attempt to come to terms with mortality. Despite the heaviness, the work is instantaneously and unequivocally a love letter to parents and life itself.

  • Lani Knezevic (b.2001) is an Australian born, Croatian raised artist. They studied Fine Art at the Victorian College of Arts, graduating in 2023. They are currently completing their Honors degree. Their practice explores themes of memory, belonging and (un)belonging. Inspired by the personal and the mundane, they question what it means to be human, to occupy a body – to be a body - through an immaterial practice of video, text and sound. Recent exhibitions include It’s Nothing Personal at Seventh (2024) and Sincere Affection at George Paton Gallery (2024).
