About Bojana Ginn
Interdisciplinary artist and former MD and scientist Bojana Ginn graduated from Medical School in Belgrade, Serbia in 2001, and completed her MFA in Sculpture at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in 2013. Merging art, science and technology, Bojana creates multimedia installations, sculpture and photography.
One of her first student works resonated with the international SciArt community and was presented at the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium in Brussels, and also in Ghent, Boston, and Baltimore. While at SCAD, Bojana was nominated for the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant and for the Outstanding Achievement Award, International Sculpture Center. After completing her studies, as a resident artist of the prestigious Studio Residency at The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Bojana was awarded a 2014 Tanne Foundation Award that she shares with her husband and artistic partner, Brian Ginn.
Bojana was honored to be an artist in residence for the 2015 Global Summit on Ethics in Bio-Engineering. For her trans-disciplinary work, her unorthodox use of materials, and her incorporation of video and sound digital technology, Bojana was a finalist for the 2015 World Technology Award in Art. Her work and writings are shown and published in Atlanta, nationally, and in Europe. Most recently her video work was exhibited at the 2016 Venice Architectural Biennale. Bojana lives with her husband and son in Decatur, GA and serves as a fellow of The World Technology Network, NYC.
