About Me

Nika Petković was born in 1992. She holds an MA and a BA degree in Film studies at the Faculty of humanities, University of Bologna, Italy.

In her photographic practice her main focus are issues like identity and memory. She is interested in exploring their boundaries, and how everyday behaviours  can be translated into new scenarios.  She works also with archive images and found footage material.

She currently lives and works in Zagreb, Croatia.
