On the first sight: nothing but drawings. But a closer look on the art of Jadranka Kosorcic reveals clearly the very conceptional essence of her works. In her art the drawings are portraits at the very end of a process concluded by means of reflecting the actual relations and the forming of identity.
Her portraits are situated consciously somewhere between the clean, faceless surface of a wanted photo and the sensible, amateur drawing of a loved face. It’s exactly the broad spectre, containing the possibility of a collapse, which shows the instability of the globalized post-modernity: its incorporation in a surface or a thread, in a normative or intimate-intensive way. Jadranka Kosorcic’s pared-down portraits seek a clear connection and an unblocked, uncompromised view of another
human being. (Raimar Stange)
