Damjanski is a contemporary Yugoslavian artist living in a browser. Concerned with themes of power, poetry and participation, he integrates field research into an exploration of illogical connections in everyday life.
"Someone came by and asked me why? I answered why not? The person looked at me confused which made me a little worried and I so also became confused."
Born in Sarajevo (B&H), he grew up in Hamburg (DE) amongst everything topical. Searching for decision spots of wonder and unlearning his conceptual work draws on the idea of the collective.
"We kept staring at each other for quite a while. Then I thought of speaking about my continuing investigation of black box approaches in our everyday lives.“
His interactive installations, browser based art, and web based applications deploy solutionism to unveil screen structures of the present.
“Suddenly, I felt less confused. Yet, I was still staring."
His work has appeared internationally, including exhibitions at Pioneer Works, ON CANAL, Tropez, MoMAR @ MoMa New York, Import Projects and IMAGE. Damjanski lives and works in New York, NY.
