Art enthusiasts can take a glimpse into the unknown at award-winning artist Dragana Jurisic's latest exhibition this spring.

From February 15 until March 12, the documentary photography exhibition 'My Own Unknown' will be on public display in the Wexford Art's Centre. The emotional and honest work incorporates a deeply personal story which involves the artist, her aunt and a young women whose body was allegedly recovered from the River Seine in the late 19th century.

Jurisic's latest offering is typical of her unique artistic style which has previously been described as frank, emotional and honest. The Dublin-based artist, who was born in SlavonskiBrod, Croatia (then Yugoslavia), has received plenty of exposure of late, having picked up the Emerging Visual Artists Award in 2014.

The EVA Award is a joint initiative between the Arts Council, Wexford County Council and Wexford Arts Centre which aims to acknowledge and support the development of committed visual artists in Ireland.
