Applied
Nostalgia

Exhibition 19Belgrade > Lisbon

The project "Applied Nostalgia" has been designed as a sequence of exhibitions of photographs taken by two eminent photographers - one from Serbia and one from the EU Presidency country. Since Portugal is presiding the EU from January to June 2021, Lisbon will be next European city which will be presented to the citizens of Serbia in unique and very special way, just as Belgrade will be presented to citizens of Portugal.

Vanja Karadžić, an author from Serbia, took photos of places, events, scenes and people in Lisbon that reminded her of Belgrade. At the same time, Inês d’Orey, an author from Portugal, photographed Belgrade and its residents through the lens of a "nostalgic" photographer. The photos of Inês and Vanja make up the "Applied Nostalgia" exhibition.

The "Applied Nostalgia" project is conceived as a series of joint photography exhibitions of two photographers, one from Serbia and the other from an EU presiding country. The project is yet another way to further enhance the cultural exchange between the two countries and promote European values and Serbia’s cooperation with the EU Member States. This exhibition is part of the activities of the Ministry of European Integration of the Republic of Serbia

Vanja Karadžić

Vanja Karadžić

Born in ex-Yugoslavia, in 1977. She grew up in Belgrade, spending her childhood between Voždovac and New Belgrade. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Spatial Planning in Belgrade, while she completed her Master’s degree in Sociology in the Netherlands. She worked in the United Nations in Kenya, and completed her PhD in Environmental Sciences in Lisbon, where she has lived and worked since 2007. From 2008 to 2012, she studied Photography in Ar.co - School of Arts and Visual Communication in Lisbon. As a freelance photographer, she has participated in several group exhibitions. She also works as a science officer. She is currently studying Gestalt psychotherapy. She is the mother of two little pirate girls, who teach her a lot about life, and, most importantly, how to love. While doing many things, she tries to live slowly, to breathe slowly, think and speak slowly. In photography, as in life, she is interested in capturing that moment that lasts, and that allows contact and intimacy. That gives you the freedom to dream up the story that makes sense to you.

Inês d’Orey

Inês d’Orey

Born in Porto, in 1977. In 2002, she graduated from London College of Printing with a degree in photography. Most of her work focuses on the transformation of the identity of heritage in the modern city, where an architectural object presents itself as a subject of memory, changing meaning over time. Architecture, the polis, the boundary between public and private space, the exploration of places and their contexts, are some of the elements that make up Inês’s body of work, whose main medium is photography, although sometimes in fusion with installation and video. She regularly exhibits, publishes and attends artistic residences. Her work is part of several private and public collections, including the EDP Foundation (PT), the Oliva Arauna Coleción (ES) or the Galleri Image (DK). For her work, Inês has received the award for the New Talent Fotografia FNAC 2007. Inês d’Orey is represented by Galeria Presença (Porto) and Galeria das Salgadeiras (Lisbon).
