Žana Kozomora is an emerging, interdisciplinary artist, curator and arts administrator based between Toronto/Tkaronto and Kitchener-Waterloo, the traditional territory of the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishnaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. She has completed studio residencies with the Dundas Valley School of Art and Centre in Hamilton, Ontario. She has recently exhibited her work with Open Sesame, Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, Xpace Cultural Centre, and Factory Media Centre. She is currently in the role of Curatorial Assistant at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery and sits on the Board of CAFKA (Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener + Area).
Kozomora’s visual practice consists of mining archives of objects, photos, and documentation which reference migrant history and the politics of transplanted heritage. She utilizes interdisciplinary methods of printmaking, drawing, video and media installation to investigate constructed notions of space, place, and identity mediated through contemporary media.
