She obtained a PhD at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Belgrade in 2016. She was the winner of the Res Artis Award at the Mediterranea 17 Young Artists Biennale in 2015. Radovanovic is a teacher at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Cetinje. Her art has been on display in many exhibitions, e.g. the Radoje Dakić factory hall in Montenegro and the Mediterranea XVII Young Artists Biennale in Milan. Radovanovic perceives art as a kind of religion. Her interests include issues concerning inner freedom, temporality, void, and bodiness. She chooses materials which have lost their original function to build large sculptures based on forms and representational characters. Radovanovic’s works of art continue their development processes in different spaces, sometimes transforming into something totally different.

During her residency in KulttuuriKauppila, Radovanovic  created a piece of art for Environmental Art Park at Ii. She dubbed her work in the words of C.S. Lewis, “You don’t have a soul. You are the soul. You have a body.”

Radovanovic represented Montenegro in the 57th International Art Exhibition la Biennale di Venezia VIVA ARTE VIVA.
