Iva Radivojevic was born in Belgrade and spent her early years in Yugoslavia and Cyprus. She is an artist and filmmaker who currently divides her time between subarctic Alaska, Brooklyn and Lesbos. Her work presents itself as a collection of fragments {observations, poetry, melodies, languages} which collage together to connect into a ruminating whole. The work circles around displacement and belonging, seeking to connect to the metaphysical or the magical. Iva’s films have screened at the New York Film Festival, New Directors/New Films, Rotterdam IFF, CPH:DOX, Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, DocLisboa, Museum of Modern Art (NYC), and were commissioned by ARTE La Lucarne and Field of Vision. She is the recipient of the Sundance Art of Non-Fiction Fellowship, Guggenheim Fellowship, NYFA Fellowship, Princess Grace Special Project Award and Film Fellowship. Signatures, or the Bass Line of a Freighter Ship, her chapbook of poems was recently published by Bottlecap Press. She’s currently working on a film set in Serbia.
