“The model we choose to use to understand something determines what we find.”
― Iain McGilchrist

An exhibition that confronts two different approaches to reality and how we comunicate it through language and signs. A voyage of perception from micro to macro and viceversa.

In her videos and photographs Erjola Zhuka testifies a dimension of behavioral spontaneity where is also able to allude to the constant threat exerted by social and cultural structures. Recording the obscenity of the real means being interested in the world and not interpreting it, where the meaning of obscene is everything that puts an end to any look, any image, any representation. Zhuka uses photography as an instrument of investigation and mirror of an individual dimension, which is reflected in a universal one.

Instead Edson Luli often is concerned with understanding how we evaluate, with the non-verbal, inner life of each individual, with how each of us experiences and makes sense of our experiences, including how we use language and how language uses us. By creating logical structures, Luli tries to avoid the clashing of value structures created by metaphors and invites the viewer to engage by applying their value structures to the logical ones and create a space-time where one can doubt and explore in depth the conditioning created by the culture around us.

In the exhibition held at Black Box Genesis, both artists try to exchange and evaluate how we live and perceive the reality in our daily life. From our simple routine and our private moments, to how language conditions how we express our needs and our ideas to each other.

Can we begin a true revolution starting with ourselves? Maybe some answers lie exactly on our daily habits when no one is looking at us.

Edson Luli was born in Shkoder (Albania) in 1989, lives and works in Milan.
Luli is graduated in New Technologies of Art (BA) and in Cinema and Video (MA) at Brera Academy of Fine Arts, Milan.

Luli is represented by Prometeo Gallery Ida Pisani, Milan - Lucca.

D|PENDENT-E - online exhibition by Albien Alushaj, 12/13-28.3.2021

“Our addictions related to our lifestyle as consumers.”

A practical reflection, on how to reinvent ourselves and approach our needs with awareness, in relation to our society.

Being promoters of the principle "change begins from us" and searching solutions, bothering to discover and enhance what life can really be.

Reinventing yourself as an artist during the lockdown and impressing these thoughts in the material used to paint, choosing concreteness also through artistic practice.

Stjöit sjielin-Fix the seal by Roee Cohen & Elisa Makarevitch, 3-28.2.2021

The research-based collaborative project Stjöit sjielin - Fix the seal settles between gaps of information within the relationship between the grey seals and the Ostrobothnian society - in which the dialectal Swedish word sjiel (soul) previously stood for seal.
Through interviews and recorded performances it aspires to mediate between humans and seals. As the seal is believed to possess magic traits, the project refers to old Ostrobothnian spell-binding rituals (read: Omlagning) as a tool to transform the negative tension into an engaging dialog with the regional cultural history.

The project is initiated by the Israeli photographer and new media artist Roe Cohen and the Fenno-Swedish theatre actor and journalist Elisa Makarevitch.

Stjöit sjielin - Fix the seal is kindly supported by Svenska kulturfonden, Svensk-Österbottniska samfundet and Teaterstiftelsen Vivicas Vänner. The exhibition is kindly supported by Svenska Kulturfonden and Taiteen edistämiskeskus (Taike).
