“Me'Ndje Hapur” is the title of the project, which accompanied us throughout the month of September. This project aimed to educate the general public and address social issues through art. The project aimed to encourage and engage in raising the discussion on social issues such as: sexuality, gender inequality, mental health and corruption.

The project offered an opportunity to experiment for artists in different disciplines, in creating works as well as bringing them to a final exhibition.
This project had several preliminary meetings, where the artists had the opportunity to hold discussions about the issues to be held.

September 1 was the opening date of the exhibition, which was held in the gallery. The exhibition encouraged reflection and debate on important social topics around us. Gender inequality, corruption, mental health and sexuality were examined through art.
The works realized by Erald Nezaj, Kristanja Çene, Albi Yzo, Besa Mustafa, Samela Balazi and Kristian Zara showed interest among the visitors.

On April 4, a meeting was held, which brought together artists and people from different fields to discuss the topic "Sexuality and Gender Inequality".

On September 6, there was also a very interesting topic entitled "Corruption".

Unknown Collective

The "Unknown Collective" exhibition by Kristian Zara opened its doors to the public on the 23rd of December. These works are part of the series with the same title, realized from the end of 2020 to the beginning of 2022. The style of the works is expressionism, but with minimalist execution (without many details).

The subject or topic addressed is related to the phenomena of the psychic world and especially in clear connection with memory; with that part of the memory deposited within our being but not very clear. These parts are the ones that, rarely, appear more like a flash in our mind than a pure memory of the past. If we gather them together, they create a collective in themselves for which we have no identity or definition. However, they create their own forms and influence our concepts about the outside world. Perhaps, they are also parts of dreams, perhaps figures that we have seen but that we have not observed for a long time. Maybe!

“There are many things and happenings that remain within our psychic realm. They fill in our inner reservoir of tremendous forces. All are transformed into an intangible matter that moves within the self. Entwined with senses and feelings, touched by thoughts and dreams, they create waves that synchronize light and shadow. Both sides form a unity, a singularity, by manifesting that active invisible life.  

Into the mind's energy, to my perception, all these seem to come from unknown collective beings.”


The artist's approach

In my artistic studies, for about 6 years, C. G. Jung's works on psychoanalysis and archetypes have had a strong influence. It is one of the areas that attracts me a lot and has already become a source of inspiration for my artwork. However, the expressionist style prevails in my personal style, while conceptualism is more and more integrated into my works. The subject I have long dealt with is the man or man between the two sides, the inner and invisible and the physical outer. For me, everything in the outer world starts from our inner world where the vital forces of our daily activity are also found.

Important for me to give directions about my artistic work, and not to explain what I want to say or have thought, and why. I think that the best I can do through the exhibiting of my works is to encourage the observer to start a process of reflection or meditation about the phenomena that are fabricated before him through visual reason. Everyone is free to find their own experience within what they see and is welcome to convey it with complete freedom.
