Artist Alena Mehić

Alena Mehić

Nashville, Tennessee, USA


Bosnian, b. 1995   —   Alena Mehić is an interdisciplinary artist originally from Zavidovići, Bosnia & Herzegovina. Drawing from the post-socialist landscape of and attitudes about the former Yugoslavia, she analyzes collective memory politics and the archive. She creates in-between spaces, concentrating on objects, architectural features, political photographs, and embroidered words to mimic the geographic and political placement of a departed country. Dissecting the dissonance between national attitudes as well as personal feelings of displacement, the images and historical design in her pieces memorialize a long-gone environment and reflect upon contemporary disillusionment. Ultimately, as a study of absence, aesthetic markers, and political relics, her practice focuses on the transformation of national memory. Most recently, she was awarded a 2021 MFA Fellowship in Painting & Sculpture from the Dedalus Foundation in New York, NY. She is currently working as a visual artist in Tennessee.
