Goran Škofić

Goran Škofić has graduated at Art Academy in Split, at the Department for Visual Communications and Design in the class of prof. Dan Oki, after completing The School of Applied Arts and Design (graphic design) in the class of prof. Ivan Obrovac. He exhibits since 2002. So far he already has been several times awarded for his works.

Nowadays he works almost exclusively in the medium of video. His work is about researching and interpreting the world we live in. He is focused to "abstractions" such as society, individual, interaction and coexistence.

The body, landscape, sound, event, all is potential subject of manipulation and deformation. In order to get closer to reality and in order to interpret it, he is using electronically manipulated images and videos, which are irreplaceable frame for understanding of contemporaneity.
