flayed to the bone
listening to the silent words
of my trembling heart
for the first time
Irena Jurca (b. 1977, Slovenia) graduated in Cultural Studies at the Faculty of Social Science, University of Ljubljana. Through self-reflective approach, she is seeking to understand invisible links between the internal experience of the world and external social reality.
She is interested in how the visual images transmit ideas, internal experience, unconsciousness, reality, and influences our understanding of the world we live in. Her work enquires themes reflecting on the human experience – existential quest, identity, transiency and understanding social reality.
