Kristina Benjocki (b.1984 Zrenjanin, Yugoslavia) is an artist living and working in Amsterdam. Her practice focuses on the investigation of post-socialist historical and cultural revisionism and examines political mechanisms of forgetting and remembering in the context of the former east and west Europe. In her research-driven practice, she often makes use of a still and moving image, sculpture, textile, photographic archives as a way to address a range of issues related to how the past is constructed and how that construction implicates our experience of the present and the way we imagine the future.
Kristina presented her work with institutions, platforms and organisations such as Masseuses Institute of Technology, US; Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka, Croatia; Regionaal Historich Centrum Limburg in Maastricht; Izolytsia, Kiev, Ukraine; American University, Beirut, Lebanon; Stedelijk Museum Buro Amsterdam; STROOM the Hague amongst others. She was an artist in residence at the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht and Mansion in Beirut.
Her forthcoming exhibitions include Kunsthal in Rotterdam; Ambika P3 in London; Graylight Projects in Brussels [group] and The National Museum in Zrenjanin, Serbia [solo].
