Matea’s experience at Belgrade AIR:
Belgrade Air Residency allowed me the unique opportunity to retreat from life-as-usual and focus on my work. As a writer, I enjoyed the peacefulness of the neighborhood, about half an hours walk from the hustle and bustle of the centre. Gordana was a wonderful host, greeting me on arrival with everything I would need for my stay and creating opportunities to meet local artists and writers. I only wish I could have stayed longer, but hope to be back soon.
Matea Kulic’s cultural background as a Canadian/Serbian/Croatian provides a departure point for her artistic practice; a point which she continually complicates and transforms through exploration of language, rhythm and ‘the tongue’ as a radical site of transformation. Her work seeks to investigate the hybrid or in-between space in questions of gender and cultural identity.
Her work has been published in The Capilano Review, RicePaper, Emerge, In/Words Magazine, Impressment Mag and The Maynard Review among others. She studied under the mentorship of poet Jen Currin at Simon Fraser University’s Writer’s Studio. She lives in Vancouver, Canada.
