Kaso’s philosophy

Ilir Kaso, showing his art in the exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné”

“Trying to recapture the same fond memories about the largest city in my imagination but apparently imagination modifies the real geographic dimensions”. Albanian artist Ilir Kaso’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

On July 8th, 2013 the Greek Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure together with Ministry of Environment singed a document which approved a project for the deviation of rivers in northern Greece, for the benefit of enriching the waters of Ioannina lake. In the list there is also River Aoos-Vjosa, which begins its journey near Vovosua in northwestern Greece and continues its natural flow towards the Adriatic sea, in Vlora, southernAlbania. People across the border didn’t knew anything about this deviation of nature. Once I learned the news I decided to do my research on the relationship between nature and human culture. Returning to nature and specifically to the river, I had to go to my native city, PÎrmet. After a long time period I decided to come back, trying to recapture the same fond memories about the largest city in my imagination. But it was not the same. Everything was so small compared to my memories. Apparently imagination modifies the real geographic dimensions. In my deepest thoughts, asking myself about this fictional town, I found myself by the same river.

What are the tools, techniques by which you prefer to work?

I’m for experimental cognitive techniques. Every work is not only a way to understand better the metaphysics in art but also an experience in different mediums. I try to understand what the best tool is to express the subject comprehensively.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

As Joseph Beuys says: I think art is the only political power, the only revolutionary power, the only evolutionary power, the only power to free humankind form all repression. I say not that art has already realized this, on the contrary, and because it has not, it has to be developed as a weapon, at first there are radical levels, then you can speak about special details.

Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?

Joseph Beuys, Francis Al?s, Marina Abramovic, Adrian Paci.

What books do you read?

e-flux journal, Boris Groys, Going Public. David Levi Strauss, Introduction by John Berger, BETWEEN THE EYES, essays on photography and politics.

“The starting point of my work is precisely the graphical notation in my sketchbook”. Venetian artist Giulia Maria Belli’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

Loprieno’s philosophy

Francesca Loprieno, showing her art in the exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné” 

“Islands are places of landing and hope. The first true form of coexistence is that between earth and sea”. Apulian artist Francesco Loprieno’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

The genesis of my work is related to my constant inner meditations. I take a lot of pictures after developing concepts, ideas and forms of expression. I have long been attracted by the concept of “living space”, that thing that connects us (migrant beings?) with the surrounding environment. I thought of islands, which are places of landing and hope, and I realized that the first true form of coexistence is that between earth and sea. A return to a primordial condition.

What are the tools, techniques by which you prefer to work?

I generally use a very small camera, a Fujifilm X-E1. I do not like to use tools that can draw attention to myself while I’m shooting, which is just the first stage of my work. I am not an enthusiast of technique, on the contrary I like to mock and ignore it. The reality around us is always distorted. I’m farsighted and, then, I have difficulty in focusing, a flaw that defines a style, as a famous photographer (Sarah Moon) said.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

I’d like to live abroad again, but I’m not sure I can stay a lifetime away from the sea. Surely, I’m going to make a long journey in 2015, I’m working on it.

Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?

I admire very much the photographer Silvia Camporesi’s work, I am in love with the photographer Uta Barth. My approach to photography is linked to art, then I do not exclude from the list of those I admire such artists as Urs Luthi, Merry Alpern, Sophie Calle and many others.

What books do you read?

Recently, I’ve read again “A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments” by Roland Barthes. The next book will be “UBU ROI” by Jarry, I love theatre.

Dani’s philosophy

Endri Dani, showing his art in the exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné”  

“The condition of being an Albanian artist in his land”.Albanian artist Endri Dani’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

My educational background as a painter permeates my photographs and installations overwhelming the techniques over a number of different mediums (found objects, artefacts of ordinary life, cultural history, souvenirs, etc.). My research mostly deals with the condition of being an Albanian artist in his land, an issue that concerns quite everybody who lives in Albania. Furthermore, my work underlines in-depth some of the paradoxes of my country. Just by being inspired by subjects close to me, or stories arising from my everyday life, I let all these insights slide poetically towards a sort of fictional space where everything is possible (i.e. the series Palimpsest; the video Suvenir i atDHEUT; or the photo series 182 cm).

What are the tools, the techniques by which you prefer to work?

Videos, photos, objects, drawing.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

Secret ;)

Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?

Francis Als, 70-80 years of Marina Abramovic & Ulay, Adrian Paci, Alberto Garutti.

What books do you read?

Theoretical, political, philosophical …
