Échos, Maja Bajevic

Échos, Maja Bajevic

The French-Bosnian artist Maja Bajevic (Sarajevo, 1967) presents her exhibition Echoes at Les Lilas. This internationally renowned artist took refuge in France in the 90s at the time of the Yugoslav conflict.

Echoes of a common memory

This ordeal has deeply influenced Maja Bajevic's artistic work and reflection, which she expresses in video, installations and performances. She makes different voices from the present and the past, from here and elsewhere, echoes of a common memory that testify to the political construction of identities and the social and historical fractures of our time.

These works make the voices of resistance fighters and victims of repression of the 20th and 21st centuries heard and mix documents from archives and media, and exchanges made during residencies with, among others, the gospel choir of the Jean Cocteau Cultural Center. The installation at the Fort of Romainville highlights the testimonies in the form of graffiti of the Resistance fighters imprisoned by the Gestapo, which the artist reproduces using neon lights. One of them, representing a parachutist, was engraved from a prison cell in Paris by members of the Free French, and is installed at the entrance to the Romainville fort.
