About

Teuta Gatolin (1993) is an intermedia artist based in Croatia, currently researching storytelling ecology, the subversive potential of mythological tricksters, nostalghia, illusion, and technology as one of the companion species to humans. Her work is often process-oriented, spawning iterations of itself realized with other fabulators. She often collaborates on intermedia performance projects, and has worked many times with the independent contemporary dance community in Croatia. Her works have taken the shape of installation, text, collections of objects, workshops, letters, costumes, virtual spaces and a range of mixes, mashups and negotiations between various art media. She studied New Media Arts at the Fine Art Academy, and Journalism/Media Studies at the Faculty of Political Sciences, both in Zagreb, Croatia.
