APOLO ART COLONY – ALBANIA 2013

2 Comments

During September I attended the Apolo Art Colony in Albania, held close to the city of Fier, somewhere in between a forest and the seashore.  My travel to Albania was quite adventurous: armed with much Ismail Kadare, I flew to Bari (Italy) and from there I crossed the Adriatic Sea. Some of the paintings are the result of this troubling night spent in the middle of the Adriatic.

Others are a continuation of my ongoing series of works “Dust” and “Dustography”, some of which you can see here: http://www.maiaoprea.ro/en/projects/2012/dust

At the end of the colony the artworks were exhibited at Galerie e Artit Fier.

All in all, the Albanian experience was thrilling: wonderful fish, deserted beaches, awful roads and speedy drivers, the surprise of Tirana, a great exhibition of Henry Moore’s drawings and litographs, Gëzuar !
