POMPEII- THE SECRET CHAMBER
HOMELESS...NOT BY CHOICE- 2013 exhibition
This artwork is about a situation which happened in 2013 in Tirana.The politics of the previous government decided to give back to ex owners the lands seized by the communist regime more than 50 years ago.The decision brought the destruction of many houses and apartment blocks, all legalized,leaving the people who lived there homeless,out of nowhere.This is a depiction in my own way of their disturbed souls,inspired by the broken walls of their houses,hopping to bring awareness to the matter.
In this collage they are all together and they lose the names, just struggling and thinking for the same cause.
All the miniatures come one by one or two by two and they all have the original names of some of the people who remained homeless.The technique is monotype and the figures theirselves have evolved from the broken walls of their former houses.
AWARENESS ON NATURE - 2012 exhibition
Silkscreen prints and handmade linocut seals, brought in the shape of an installation, making the exhibition interactive with the people who came in, and wanted to mark their attendance with one of the seals provided by me. The silkscreen design is inspired by wood and trees, and the seals have different figures to bring out the inner side of whichever uses them.This artwork is about bringing awareness to nature.
