This publication is the first monograph in English on the acclaimed Serbian sculptor Olga Jevrić (1922–2014). It marks two acclaimed exhibitions presented at PEER and Handel Street Projects, London 2019, and the acquisition of nine of her remarkable sculptures for Tate’s collection.
Jevrić’s work was celebrated by her European and American contemporaries; she travelled and exhibited extensively during the 1950s and 60s, and in 1958 she represented Yugoslavia at the Venice Biennale. Yet, although Jevrić continued working until the 2000s, the economic, socio- and geo-political upheavals of the last four decades provided scant opportunities for her work to be seen outside of the former Yugoslavia.
There is also an opportunity to purchase a special limited edition hardback presented in a bespoke Solander box containing artworks by Phyllida Barlow and Richard Deacon.
Phyllida Barlow and Richard Deacon have generously produced artworks to support the production of our Olga Jevrić book.
Barlow has created a series of unique drawings based on Jevrić’s sculpture. These acrylic drawings are on 300gsm Arches watercolour rough paper.
Deacon’s print is based on a photograph, taken by Mrdjan Bajic in 2014, of Olga Jevrić discussing one of her works with Richard Deacon. Printed onto Sonata textured 300gsm paper.
These artworks, measuring 210 x 230mm, are presented with a hardback edition of the book in a bespoke silkscreen-printed cloth Solander box in an edition of 20 with six artists’ proofs.
