Press Release

Gallery70 goal is to provide a space for promotion and career development to established, emerging and young artists , hosting an international exhibition program and facilitating artist exchange through group shows, residencies and mobility. Its excellent location at the very heart of the city , with a triangular shape and an 8 meter large window display , offers artists and curators the challenge for experimentation and site specific installation . Gallery70 works at building a solid collectors base to empower its artists.
Our four artists participating this year in Supermarket present a series of artworks that join the main theme of the fair in a very personal perspective:

Kristanja Çene proposes “The tongue”... this little small fleshy part inside our mouth that can cause so much damage. This so soft piece of our body , that cannot be domesticated, so unruly and full of venom. Life and death lie in its power. It is similar to the human head in my artwork, that bends its tongue like a bow.

Symphony of Mockery by Jon Kraja depicts moments of the constant and never-ending mocking human performance , under the lights of chandeliers, wondering if mockery has become our only way to communicate . The artwork is build by constructing and deconstructing the image. The brutal spill over of the color destroys the figure and the original order , provoking the chaos that delivers the final image. Jon Kraja introduces in this series a gestural , central black and white, irregular line “I don’t know if it is a frequency of energy , a childhood flashback of the jamming image, as seen in the TV , or a fragment of heart ECG. But I know that it helps me to tell a story in multiple levels ”

For Resina Meçani that comes with “Fruit Market” Everything that was covered by a canopy of sunlight is now leaving room for the night lights. Life went on, quietly. What I was more interested in were the fruit and vegetable markets. They had their own vivid life, like some sort of theatrical pieces

Grandmother's Eye- installation by Inda Sela , deals with the memory. An expression in visual language has often the fatal narrowness of occurring as a discharge of intelligence and sometimes has the fate of being triggered by artifacts that return the time from a frozen state to more direct experiences of feelings. Art for me is a incongruity between the journey of intelligence and the personalized framework of experience. The product is the time that decomposes this bumpy encounter. The time-traveling visualizations that I propose do nothing but collide the emotional process with personalized conventions. In a mix media where I present this artwork, there is room for an intermediate dialogue like this.
