Elmedin Zunic is a Bosnian-born Norwegian artist who currently resides in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
He works across a wide range of media, encompassing installation, photography, drawing and
video. He has been actively involved in both the art scene and exhibiting in Australia,
South-East Asia, South Africa, Kurdistan, and Norway.
Philosophy forms a substantial aspect in Elmedin's work addressing the issues of social and
political unrest and expatriation – all of which the artist has personal connections to, having
grown-up during the conflict that consumed former Yugoslavia.
He has recently completed his doctorate at Victorian College of the Arts, investigating the ability
of art to represent traumatic historical experience focusing on the conflict in the former
Yugoslavia in the 1990s in Bosnia. Using the Freudian structure of Nachträglichkeit, Elmedin
found that the hostilities following the war were sublimated and continued through a conflict of
representations – war of images.
