Fani Zguro
Text by Clara Meister
Collegium Artisticum, Sarajevo
From September 30 until October 30, 2016

Collegium Artisticum is pleased to announce the solo exhibition of Fani Zguro, 'From The Series Untitled' with a text by Clara Meister, from September 30 to October 30, 2016. The exhibition consists in the presentation of the photograph series 'From The Series Untitled' (2015), which starts in 2007. A group of people, standing. Side by side in the good old days. Dressed up for a special occasion. They look into the camera, smile and pose for the photographer who is capturing this presumably important moment for eternity. Their faces are all turned towards the lens, presenting themselves; even the ones who stand in the second row move their heads into position so they can be seen. Yet there is a harsh interruption in this seemingly happy image: a man dressed in dark colors holding a stick and another man in a bright suit with his hands behind his back are withdrawn from view. Someone has carefully ripped out a strip of the photograph from the top, at the level of their heads. Their faces are gone…

Fani Zguro was born in 1977 in Tirana. Lives and works in Tirana, Milan and Berlin. Zguro has studied at Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brera in Milan.
