Jagoda Buic Biography

Jagoda BUIĆ is best known for her immersive installations and work in textiles, which she began creating in the mid-1960s, yet her creative practice extends to encompass scenography and set design, costume design, works on paper and collage. Her interdisciplinary approach draws on her profound connection to theatre, antiquity and her Dalmatian roots, creating tactile works, often on a large-scale, brimming with style and self-assurance. By dispensing with the traditional loom, Buić gives her materials a new and powerful corporeality, boldly venturing into three-dimensional space and creating ‘textile environments.'
