Emigration, being lost in a strange world, the search for a new identityand longing for things and people that have been lost form the central topics in the work of the Albanian artist Adrian Paci. The volume presents his iconic works which have earned him a world reputation.
Adrian Paci emigrated from Albania to Italy with his family in the late 1990s. His own experience of flight, of giving up shared communities and his searching for a new identity have left their mark on his artistic work. Over the last 20 years expressive works have been created in the form of videos, photos, painting and sculptures which treat theseexistential experiences. The accompanying essays take up this politically topical subject and examine Paci’s oeuvre from various angles. An interview with the artist rounds out the volume.
