VISA reveal exhibition

🎉 Visa Reveal Exhibition 🎉
by Maja Simišić

You're cordially invited to the Visa Reveal Exhibition following the Visa Reveal Party by Maja Simišić - a celebration that embraces the joyous spirit of unveiling, just like those trendsetting gender reveal parties we all know and love! However, this time, we're taking it up a notch, transforming it into an unforgettable occasion for Maja's life journey.

Maja applied for her visa on September 15th, 2022, and we've eagerly awaited the IND’s decision ever since. The anticipation is heightened by IND's whimsical rule of counting the application day as the start of the two-year visa, drawing the ending day of her possible stay nearer with each passing minute, keeping us on our toes and immersed in the peculiarities of the bureaucratic biosphere. Will Maja’s dreams of staying in the Netherlands for one more year come true? The answer awaits, and we can't wait to share this exclusive and intimate moment with you.
Picture an enchanting gala ambiance, glasses of bubbly champagne, and an atmosphere buzzing with excitement. The Visa Reveal Party promises to be a unique blend of elegance and playful anticipation, as we unveil the long-awaited news. Following the revelry, an exhibition will showcase remnants from the party alongside Maja's extraordinary "restroying" art—masterpieces infused with whimsical humor.

Maja Simišić is a multimedia artist focusing on everyday battles, and finding ways to turn them on their head. The model she uses to overthrow existing gender and class struggles in her work is built by analysing the expectations put on us by modern societal structures and historical narratives.
As a female from the Balkans, living and working in the western world, her artistic practice is deeply influenced by, on the one hand, the perception of the eastern European in western society, and on the other, the way in which people in the Balkans are raised, their fundamental beliefs, and the role of women in both these contexts.
