Dripping Cavities


by Bekim Hasaj & Valentina Gelain


exhibition project




Dripping Cavities. Title that heralds in a whispered but vibrant vision the two works presented, evoking connections among their peculiarities.
A pragmatic research, outlined by traces and testimonies, contrasts with a more abstract analysis, driven by feelings... an exploratory state corresponds to a wandering motion.

However, elements of a common stage also emerge in the profiling of this individual narrative that intertwine by exchanging incipit of content with explicit of form.

In the exhibition the artist Bekim Hasaj is presenting the ungoing investigation 'Scanning Landscape', through which he reconsiders to represent the landscape out of its conventional-historical frames, followed the urgency to know and then impress the intimate relationship with the surrounding in a visual yet original and personal abstraction.


The multidisciplinary body of work 'The Grey Hour' by Valentina Gelain, highlights how we can relate emotionally to the environment to express our inner mental and emotive states, showing a frame of mind connected to apathy, the inability to act, the difficulty of self-relating and, specifically, the dissociative disorders.

The projects were inspired, finding expression and concreteness, by the territories and spaces of Ostrobothnia in 2021. The two works, echoing each other and finding resonance in their duality, open a dialogue that finds voice in the shared experience and collaboration of the artists, as well as the areas where they have been realized.

 Therefore, the geographical aspect and the objective/subjective (re)interpretation of the landscape, together with the exploratory and experimental line are decisive and form the core of ‘Dripping Cavities’.

All this is accentuated by the character and research of Hasaj and Gelain who, through a plurality of mediums and techniques such as video, photography, sculpture, painting, offer a varied scenario of content and form.


Being led by patterns of an imprinted meditation flowing through the encounters and junctions of a reality that has always been there and is now uncovered, unrolled and delineated in an even more intricate map... real paths and mental labyrinths, where one blurs having the possibility of recomposing, finding oneself in a myriad of facets ready to merge.

Encouraging dialogue and confrontation on the awareness of the other and ourselves, finding expression in the environment and its nuances; bringing out the territory through perceptions, colours, shapes, patterns that, by concretizing the almost/now invisible, refresh the viewer's gaze with renewed curiosity.
