Flaka Haliti

A conversation with Flaka Haliti and Joanna Warsza

It’s our pleasure to invite you to a public conversation between the artist Flaka Haliti and curator Joanna Warsza. The conversation departs from Flaka’s artistic intervention at Manifesta 14 Prishtina “Under the Sun Explain What Happened” that’s placed at the Palace of Youth and Sports, and will end with a public discussion on Flaka’s overall practice.

Location: Red Hall at the Palace of Youth and Sports in Prishtina.

More about the participants:

Flaka Haliti’s artistic practice includes mixed media, sculpture and spatial installation with a decidedly site-specific approach.

Haliti explores themes of appropriation and re-arrangement in her works in order to create new, hybrid patterns. She engages with political reflection and geopolitical preoccupations by emphasising how different visual and conceptual views can alter individual perceptions. Throughout her work, she negotiates topics such as territorial boundaries and powers, including national borders or associations like the United Nations or the European Union.

Haliti’s work confronts the nebulous politics of identity construction, aiming to move beyond categorisations of gender or national ideas of belonging.

Joanna Warsza is a co-curator of the Polish pavilion at the 59 Venice biennale with the work of Romani artist Malgorzata Mirga-Tas, Program Director of CuratorLab at Konstfack University of Arts in Stockholm and a co-curator together with Övül Ö. Durmusoglu, of the 3rd and 4th Autostrada Biennale in Kosovo.

The conversation is organised in collaboration with Autostrada Biennale.
