Salon: Dritan Hyska and Adela Jusic
Dritan Hyska will present his work and artistic research that focuses on the urban realities of Albania and Italy through the representation of bridges, overpasses, glimpses of deserted cities, cement and construction. Hyska was born in 1980 in Korce, Albania. He lives and works between Venice, Italy and Tirana, Albania. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Venice.
Adela Jusic will show The Sniper and Who needs DRNC?, two video works that tackle the subject of war as well as one work-in-progress, Bedtime Stories (in collaboration with Bosnian artist Lana Cmajcanin). Jusic grew up in besieged Sarajevo during the 1992-1995 war which greatly influenced her artistic practice. Her work incorporates personal emotions and memories connected to the war and the position of women and children in conflict. Jusic was born in 1982 in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina where she currently lives and work. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and from the University of Sarajevo and is a co-founder of the Association for Art and Culture Crvena.
