Marina Ćorić – "Lace", b/w photograph, 30x30cm, 2010
In her work, mainly painting and photography, Marina Ćorić problematizes the self-portrait. Her focus is on candour and expressing own feelings, presenting own intimate world to the viewer.
In the work “Lace”, she is trying to express her esthetic inclinations related to the universal ideal of beauty.
In the words of the artist, this photograph is a projection of her fantasies about what she would like to be, yet she is not.
