Statement

Irena Pejovic (maiden: Kojkova, b. 1981, Gevgelija, Macedonia; lives and works in Cranford, NJ) received her BFA and MFA from Montclair State University. Pejovic makes events that go beyond the visual realm, choreographing movements that turn the audience into an explorer of a world that is active and becoming—as a set of unfolding relationships—in a way that they have not before. In her work, the audience is moving-sensing, using vision, sound, navigation, feeling texture, color, scale, being both mobile and immobile. The work, the space and the viewer take an equal part in the making of the events.

Solo exhibitions include Galerija AMAM, Gevgelija, Macedonia; Galerija Karas, Zagreb, Croatia; Gallery MC, New York, NY; and Gallery Aferro, Newark, NJ. Selected group exhibitions include: 2015. dirt-e, Central Booking, New York City, USA, curated by Ben Davis; 2014. Sliver, Index Art Center, Newark, NJ, USA; 2013. Stars in My Pocket like Grains of Sand, curated by Jayson Keeling, Lower East Side Printshop, New York City, USA; New Print Show, Bushwick Print Lab, Brooklyn, USA; 2012. Legacy Printmaking Center of New Jersey, Branchburg, NJ, USA; Rhythm and Movement, Lana Santorelli Gallery, Hoboken, NJ; International Juried Exhibition, Box Heart Gallery, Pittsburgh, PA, USA;

In 2012, she served as a member of the Board of Directors at the Printmaking Center of New Jersey.
