Ana Milenkovic lives and works in London. She holds an MFA from Wimbledon College of Arts, University of the Arts London, as well as MFA and BA from Faculty of Fine Art, University of Arts in Belgrade.
“Transience is the driving force of my practice. I make artwork about heroism and the need to overcome fragility of the body. I am particularly interested in Ernest Becker’s concept of a “heroic project” - an immortality mission in which one becomes “unburdened of the flesh” and continues to create meaning beyond one’s own lifetime.”
Milenkovic is the recipient of UAL/Clifford Chance Sculpture Award, Griffin Art Prize and Prize for Innovation from the Milos Bajic Fund. She is a studio artist at Studio Voltaire, London.

Time At Hogchester Arts
My residency in Dorset has been among the highlights of the glorious summer. Hosted by Chantal in her dreamy studio, I had the opportunity to experiment with clay, photography and Photoshop. When I met Elvis the goat, it was love at first sight and so her became the sole focus of my productive time at Hogchester. Here he is an an Assyrian relief, soon to be published in a limited print edition.
