Dragana Jurisic's work looks at the effects of exile and displacement on memory and identity. There are a significant number of artists who are exiles and émigrés. Once a person loses his or her original world, they realise how fragile all the other worlds are. The fragmentation that occurs as a result, in return, provides a wealth of material to be explored through artistic means. Photography in particular, contains elements such as fleetingness, which allow it to capture that sense of rootlessness and dislocation with relative ease. Both exile and photography intensify our perception of the world. In both, the memory is in its underlining core. Both are characterised by melancholy. As Salman Rushdie said, the exiles live "more comfortably in images, in ideas, than in places."
