Croatian Artist Iva Supic Jankovic offers us, by way of this year’s ANTI Festival T-shirt, her short text piece: ’Public Space My Ass’. For us at ANTI, a festival presenting art works made for public space, Iva’s intervention is both conceptually rigorous and properly amusing. For Iva the work is ‘a criticism of definitions used in contemporary art theories, which tend to define art by its form, thus narrowing an idea of art instead of widening it’. For all of us at ANTI 2010 it’s a great look!
Iva will make a limited run of 300 editions, so get your hand drawn T-shirt from the Festival Centre and wear it with pride. The shirt costs 15€.

“As an artist I always feel I should be against any imposed or enforced systems, especially against such systems in the art world. My art practice relates to the problem of the young, yet undiscovered artist, inefficiency of the art world, geopolitics as enforced fashion-politics of non-white and non-western art and the issue of materiality of material and materialistic art. Most of my work is based on text.”
