Aleksandra Domanović looks at the history and development of technology through a gender-conscious lens. Her work specifically focuses on the point at which the machine meets, interfaces and touches the human user.
In her first institutional solo exhibition in Scotland, Domanović focuses on the marginalised representation of women in popular science fiction. Films such as Blade Runner (1982), Demon Seed (1977), Alien (1979), Prometheus (2012) and Gravity (2013) form the source material for prints of objects that interact or contribute to an important part of the female characters’ narrative. These films deviate from the conventional representation of women in cinema, where they are typically shown as mother, love interest or victim.
Domanović was a finalist for the OHO award, Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2011.Previous solo shows include: ‘The Future Was at Her Fingertips’, Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin, Germany (2013); ‘Turbo Sculpture’, SPACE, London(2012); Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany (2012)She has also exhibited in numerous group shows such as: ‘…Was ist Kunst?…’, Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz, Austria (2013); ‘A Different Kind of Order’, ICP Triennial, New York, USA (2013); ‘Lux Biennial of Moving Image’ (screening curated by Benjamin Fallon), Tramway, Glasgow, UK (2012); ‘The Petrified River’ (curated by M.
