Nataša Kokić

Brief info

Nataša Kokić's work is based on the observation of the position of an individual in the context of contemporary society, passed through the prism of natural coincidence - a concept that originated in philosophy as opposed to determinism. The concept of natural randomness extends to date from ancient philosophy of Democritus and Epicurus and talks about changes on a fundamental level, in which atoms and molecules exist. All phenomena are derived from uniform and meaningless movements and interactions of atoms in empty space. The individual in modern society is an example of such a propagation of influence, where he acts in harmony with the environment, and yet again his behaviour affects the environment itself. As the relationship between determinism and free will, Kokić asks questions about how we actually control our own lives, how our private history affects the present and how society affects our perception of what is important.
