Artist Feature of Ivan Tomasevic

“Plima” dives into the world of my father’s war veteran community, bringing to light some of the underlying effects the war continues to have on their lives. While the physical destruction of war can be seen immediately, its psychological aftermath often remains hidden. Consequences of military trauma have left many veterans marginalized due to their inability to reintegrate socially. Despite the sacrifices they made during the conflict, they receive hardly any support and are left to their fate. The series embodies my emotional connection to the past, reflecting on how the conflict shaped my childhood and the environment I grew up in. Plima - Croatian word for “High tide”, used as a radio code during the Independence war.
