Julija Zaharijević

Julija Zaharijević (1991) is a Vienna-Berlin based artist whose practice deals with the perpetual  circulation of images in our globalized society. She is interested in the origins of the images, their  values and symbolism—and how they change depending on context. Her practice draws influence  from history of art and painting, from popular culture, and from the social intricacies of Europe’s art  bubble. Zaharijević works in various media, such as sculpture, writing and painting. Her work has  been in solo exhibitions: Modern Painting, Bbberlin, Berlin (2022); solo presentation at  viennacontemporary with Eugster || Belgrade (2022); Oh no! The View, Georg Kargl PERMANENT,  Vienna (2021); Silver Lane, Alienze, Vienna (2021). Recent group exhibitions include: On the New  — Viennese Scenes and Beyond, Belvedere 21, Vienna (2023); Structure, Eugster || Belgrade  (2023), hyper (hyper), Callirrhoë, Athens (2022); SYSTEMA, with Pina, Marseille (2022); Burn The  Groves, Löwengasse, Cologne (2022); Jahresgaben 2022, Kevin Space, Vienna (2022), among  others.
