Bozica’s Hand (2020) $2,200
As Radjenovic explains, each of her materials speaks with its own language. Wool speaks of the connection to her childhood and her homeland in Serbia. Bronze speaks of time and the elusiveness of memory, and whereas the artist will not live on forever, items made from this copper-based alloy just might.
In Bozica’s Hand, an oxide bronze evokes a monument from another era. The hand has been enrobed with crystal, as if nature itself considers it a valuable object.

Newbies (2018) $1,000
Cast plaster from knitted molds
These objects continue Radjenovic’s long standing use of the knitted form as a basis for sculpture and performance art. Radjenovic began exploring knitting as a form of sculpture after experiencing censorship while travelling to her homeland of Serbia with.
Newbies are created by Radjenovic by casting into knitted volume. Through the deconstruction process these plaster sculptures reveal the interior form of the knitted object while retaining some of the wool of the original object.
