Nermin Durakovic (1979) is a visual artist, based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
He is born in the Former Yugoslavia, today’s Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 2005 he graduated at the Funen Academy of Fine Arts (Denmark) and has exhibited at museums and galleries in Denmark and abroad. Next to his work production he has initiated several social initiatives with a socio-political and cultural mobilising agenda.

In his latest solo exhibition, Northern Insularity, Nermin Durakovic gathers works from 10 years of production. The exhibition addresses human ignorance that manifests itself on a structural, institutional and personal level, and which is present in societies in the Northern part of Europe today – but which is by no means limited to the Northern European societies.

This kind of human insularity, more precisely the socio-political state of things in Denmark, has been the point of interest in Nermin Durakovic’s art production over the past ten years. In his art practice he is concerned with the spaces, the physical settings and mental states which are part of life for people seeking a new life in Denmark.

His art works are typically comprised of installations combined with video, animation and sound, giving shape to imbalances and states of being which are not part of the public tales or given much airtime in the media, but which are however omnipresent in Danish society and contemporary European society.
