Angela Blažanović is a visual artist based in London, UK. She graduated from BA (Hons) Photography from London Metropolitan University in 2019. Through a performative approach between photography and sculpture the artist investigates the symbiotic relationship between human and landscape. The overlooked & discarded, traces of human presence and the attachment to landscapes are central themes in Blažanović practise.

In her current work Fragments of a River Blažanović creates compositions of found objects from the bed of the River Thames at low tide. Drawing on the aesthetics of Dutch still life paintings the artist transforms discarded objects into fragile compositions, highlighting the beauty that lies within.

Her work has been included in exhibitions internationally including; ‘Jetsam’, a two-person exhibition, Sid Motion Gallery, January 2020; ‘2020 Capture Public Art Project’, King Edward Station, Vancouver, Canada; ‘Free Range 2019’, Old Truman Brewery, London; ‘Cream 2019’, University of Brighton; ‘Unsigned’, Bartle Bogle Hegarty, London. In 2019 Blažanović was announced the winner of the Free Range 2019 & Metro Imaging Award and the Owen Rowley Prize. Blažanović’s work has been reproduced in print in The FT Weekend, Wallpaper* Magazine, Uncertain States, and has been written about online in Port Magazine, The Guardian, Booooooom, ShowStudio and Elephant Magazine.
