Žana Kozomora is an emerging, interdisciplinary artist, curator and arts administrator. She has completed studio residencies with the Dundas Valley School of Art and Centre in Hamilton, Ontario, and exhibited her work with Open Sesame, Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, Xpace Cultural Centre, and Factory Media Centre. She is currently pursuing a Master of Visual Studies at the University of Toronto, and sits on the Board of CAFKA (Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener + Area). Kozomora was born in Sarajevo, BiH, and grew up in Kitchener, Ontario, the traditional territory of the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishnaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. She is currently based in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton 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.
