Calovski & Ivanoska

Calovski & Ivanoska
Hristina Ivanoska and Yane Calovski are collaborating since 2000. They strive to both conceptualy and contextualy incoporate objects, texts, drawings, videos and installations, often interdisciplinary and as a critical investigation into the experience of present-day social and political systems and their relationship to theory and history. They work is based on extensive research in archives. They deal with places of history and collect local vernacular culture, such as objects; stories and songs, for re-creation, showing that contemporary conceptual art could create new and innovative scenarios and surfaces for indigenous knowledge to interact with history and society. Their projects have been presented in various international contexts and at institutions including Skopje Art Museum (2018), Zagreb Art Museum (2017), the Macedonian Pavillion at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015), Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden (2014), HDLU- Croatian Association of Artists, Zagreb (2009), ŻAK | BRANICKA Gallery, Berlin (2008), Kronika Gallery, Bytom, Poland (2007), and many other venues. Their individual and collaborative works are part of a number of public and private collections, including Deutsche Bank Collection, Art Telekom Collection, Van Abbemuseum, Museum of Contemporary Art Skopje, and others.
