Igor Grubic

Igor Grubić (b. 1969, Zagreb) is one of Croatia’s most accomplished and internationally acclaimed artists. His work includes site-specific interventions in public spaces, photography, and film. Since 2000 he is also working as a producer and author of documentaries, TV reportages and socially committed commercials. He represents Croatia at the 58th Venice Biennale with the long-term project Traces of Disappearing (In Three Acts) and the short, experimental documentary/animation film How Steel Was Tempered, which has received several awards.

Igor Grubić has been active as an multimedia artist in Zagreb since the early '90s, making photography, video, and site-specific actions. His interventions into public space, along with video works explore past and present political situations while cutting through the fabric of reality. Grubić’s critical, socio-politically committed practice is characterised by the long-term engagement and investment into the subjects he chooses to work with. From the in-depth exploration of the fate of historical monuments and the demise of industry, to examination of the predicament of minority communities, his projects unfold over several years of research and grassroots, personal relationships. Though grounded in the documentary tradition, Grubić’s work in photography and film is characterized by an affective and empathic approach, which is deeply humane and often poetic.

Grubić has participated in numerous major international exhibitions including, among others: Tirana Biennial 2 (2003); Manifesta 4 (Frankfurt, 2002); Manifesta 9 (Genk, 2012); 50. October Salon (Belgrade, 2009); Gender Check, MuMOK (Vienna, 2009); 11. Istanbul Biennial (2009); 4. Fotofestival Mannheim Ludwigshafen, Heidelberg (2011); East Side Stories, Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2012); Gwangju Biennale (2014); Zero Tolerance, MOMA PS1 (New York 2014); Degrees of Freedom, MAMbo (Bologna, 2015); 5th Thessaloniki Biennial (2015); Cut / Rez, MSU (Zagreb, 2018); Heavenly creatures, MG+MSUM (Ljubljana, 2018); The Value of Freedom, Belvedere 21 (Vienna, 2018).

His work is included in the collections of TATE Modern, the Museums of Contemporary Art in Belgrade and Zagreb, Muzeum Sztuki, Kadist Collection, Kontact Collection and Art Collection Telekom, among others.
