Teuta Gatolin (1993) is an intermedia artist based in Croatia, currently interested in storytelling ecology, the ways narratives about nature are constructed, the subversive potential of mythological tricksters, and considering technology as one of the companion species to humans. Her work is often process-oriented, spawning iterations of itself that are then realized with other fabulators. She also collaborates on intermedia performance projects, often with the contemporary dance community in Zagreb.
She had three solo exhibitions, and many group shows, so, for a while, her work inhabited Pogon, Vladimir Nazor gallery, Hall V. of the Nikola Tesla Technical Museum, GMK gallery, Lipa memorial Centre, Greta gallery, the internet and other places. These works have taken the shape of installations, text, collections of objects, workshops, letters, costumes, virtual spaces and a range of mixes, mashups and negotiations between them. She studied New Media Arts at the Fine Art Academy, and Journalism/Media Studies at the Faculty of Political Sciences, both in Zagreb, Croatia.
She often distrusts the white box but enjoys making it darker. She's good at finding objects lost in the streets. She likes to linger around exits and entrances. If she weren’t an artist, she'd be an archivist.
