– Hi Vesna, could you present yourself? What is your background ?
I am Vesna Vrdoljak, 40 years old. I have a Croatian father and Dutch mother. I am married, I have two children and I live in Amsterdam.
I studied Film theory at the University of Amsterdam. I have been working in film production and distribution. Later I worked at the Amsterdam School of the Arts, where I was responsible of marketing and communication.
– What sparked that transition from art in theory to one in practice ?
Making collages came organically : assembling and cutting papers and pictures. I started doing this more and more as I spent a lot of time home with a (sleeping) baby. Later, when I quit my office job and my second child came along, collage became a daily habit. The desire to express myself through making collages became an urge.
