Dina Rončević (1984) is a new media artist and a puppet animator from Croatia who has graduated from the Art Academy in Zagreb. Rončević’ work mostly questions gender positions and often has a performative character. For her graduate work she completed a professional training to be a car mechanic. During this three-year long project (2007–2010) she worked on issues of social identity and gender roles in this masculine dominated socio-cultural niche. Her work has been shown e.g. 2011 at the XV Biennale de la Méditerranée in Thessaloniki (Greece). This year she takes part in an ephemeral group exhibition Simplon Express / the Return* on a historic train connection between Zagreb and Paris which was conceived by the curator Ida Biard.
