Born 1972 in Vienna; lives in Vienna.
Studied at the University of Applied Arts and the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.

Lulic explores the traditional concept of sculpture in his videos, actions and installations. Rather than binding himself to a specific media, he cites and combines film, music, painting and sculpture to question, with overlapping references, translations and transferrals, the relationship between the body and sculpture in public spaces. In addition to the mentioned formal aspects, he is interested in cultural, social and political issues: the relationship between the present and past, between ideology and social reality, and (in particularly) the construction of ideologies and historical avant-garde movements in public spaces. A literal formulation of this approach is taken by the artist in the video »Reactivation (Circulation in Space)«, in which he uses the metal rings of a 1971 sculpture by Vojin Bakic as a gymnastics apparatus. In doing so, he explores everything that is or can be understood as »circulation in space« in the most literal sense.
