Marija Šujica is a visual and performance artist form Serbia based in the Netherlands. She holds an MFA from the Dutch Art Institute (2012) and a BFA from Faculty of Fine Arts, Belgrade (2008), as well as a MAPA master diploma in physical theatre.
With her interest in enactivism and participation, Šujica resorts to diverse techniques such as somatic dance, action-perception or action learning, as intervention frameworks and processes that inform her art making. By including elements from performing and visual art practice, she re-designs methods originally developed to support recognition of subjective world of set members and the social context of their works and lives, creating the work that puts in focus the interaction between individuals or groups with their surroundings. The performance is manifested through one on one sessions, guided performances, audio tours and ambient installations.
Four Sisters is a public garden and a community project initiated by Marija Šujica, Müge Yilmaz and The Beach i.s.m Iris Dik.
