Born in Split, Croatia. Lives and works in Sydney.
Jelena Telecki is interested in representation in painting and sculpture. Installation plays an important part in creating a dialogue between painting and sculpture and is used as a means of articulating her sense of personal and shared narratives, internal and the external. Jelena’s most recent work traces her interest in the ways power relations inform our decision-making and how we experience the choices we make.
Jelena has exhibited in Australia, UK and Japan, and has been awarded several scholarships and grants, including the University of Sydney Postgraduate Award 2008-2009; and the Australia Council for the Arts grant for the development of new work, 2010. In 2014, her work was exhibited in NEW14 (curated by Kyla McFarlane), Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne. She has been a resident artist at artist-run initiative, 55 Sydenham Rd, Sydney, 2016-2018.
