Bruno Isaković creates a series of site-specific performances in museums of contemporary art. Bosnian Girl focuses on the potent factors that make up our lives and the paths we take (gender, sexuality, love, desire) and the translation of this process of transformation that continues throughout life via the naked body and its multiple meanings. In May 2015, Isaković retold the story of the painting Bosnian Girl of Šejla Kamerić which shows a woman staring defiantly at the camera in stark black and white. The text overlaid on on the image reads “NO TEETH…? A MUSTACHE…? SMEL LIKE SHIT…? BOSNIAN GIRL!” In his performance, Isaković transforms his body in the dominant color in the painting, disappearing within the process in the color, but at the same time reappearing as a new presence in the dialogue with the painting.
