Collision

Stacie McCormick and Jelena Buljaić

29 April – 29 June 2016

Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop is pleased to announce its first exhibition, a mixed media display of artworks created by artists and collaborators Jelena Bulajić and Stacie McCormick. For more than two years of knowing each other, the artists have created works driven by their individual practices, as well as works mutually inspired, finding a collaborative expression in what seems an unlikely pair.

On exhibit will be new works created by both artists, as well as a limited edition handmade book of McCormick’s poetry accompanied by Bulajić’s drawings. Bulajić will exhibit her now celebrated large portraits alongside a courageous new yet to be seen landscape. McCormick will exhibit a series of photographs exploring her long fascination with undiscovered/unexamined beauty through photography. A vitrine entitled “Archive of an Experience” will display some of the more playful and crossover elements of shared experiences and eccentricities between the two artists over the two years and a half relationship.

Stacie McCormick (b. 1962) is a UK based artist. Her works are concerned with the
unexpected sublime found and recorded in photography, poetry, video and sound. McCormick’s painting practice follows the same principal of found beauty in manifesting the accident within large scale abstract gestural painting. Stacie has an MA in Fine Art, City & Guilds of London Art School, London, UK (2001).

Jelena Bulajić (b. 1990) is a Serbian artist. Her works are concerned with the surface of the aging human face, and are predominantly realized as drawings and paintings. Most recently, Bulajić has been a part of the highly publicized “Champagne Life” exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery, London. Bulajić has a BA in Visual Arts, Academy of Arts, Novi Sad, Serbia (2012), and an MA in Fine Art, City & Guilds of London Art School, London, UK (2013).
