Being known to the large audience as a muse of the famous photographer Helmut Newton, could be the life achievement for anybody. When talking about Xena,XENA DIVINE it’s just an important part of her rich career, as it is her work on the film. I’ll cite some: “Nirvana”, Gabriele Salvatores, “For happiness you need three”, R. Grlic, “Hot afternoon”, M. Sesardic, “Macolata Conceptio”, where Xena was the director. She worked with: Solima, D. Risi, M. Ferreri, C. Ferrario, among the others. Then comes the theater, radio & TV, video.
Another important part belongs to the fashion industry, where she worked as the top model for Alexander McQueen, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Miyake, Versace, but she also had her own fashion house “Hermetika” in Milan, Italy, where she still lives. This is just to give you the idea about the personality you’ll get to know better.
Thanks to our long friendship I was able to ask her things you probably don’t know. The way she answered, represents her too. This explains why we’ve made this interview talking in Serbian, Croatian, Italian, and English. For the convenience, I’ve left it in English and somewhere in Croatian, to show you how cryptic she, XENA DIVINE. was when talking in her language, “knitting” the words I’ve used into new meanings she was giving, playing then in Italian, or being serious in English…
She simply lives her art , XENA DIVINE, whether it’s her body expression, the embodiment of words, sounds, or tone volumes, it’s always a Life Energy she’s giving as a modern Goddess, creator of future worlds, bringing the meanings from the invisible into visible world, physical dimension, and the senses of other people, to give them one new, different re-birth.
