Lives and works Cairns, Australia
Teva Cosic is an artist based between Naarm/Melbourne and Gimuy/Cairns. Her research and practise explore the complex tensions of family and cultural history as they intersect with boarder notions of identity, migration and belonging. Her series, Wander Lines (2022) was made during a six week period visiting her grandmother in Sweden for the first time in five years. Wander Lines explores the uncanny encounter of the familiar as it has been made strange through the separation of time. Cosic writes: ‘here, in the town my mother grew up and my grandmother grows old, the everyday is transmogrified through the strange parallelism of a life that has only ever partly been mine.’ The work features symbols drawn from history, tradition and mythology.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
