Fani Zguro
Accademia di Brera, Milan
From March 25 until April 25, 2019

'Writing Jobs' is a project by Fani Zguro, which consists in texts on the large and small scale. 'Writing Jobs' are phrases taken from the collection of short stories 'Mr. Dosti', a literary work of short stories by the artist, finished and published in 2010. The text itself features various types of writings such as poetry, notes, projects, pieces of texts from various artists, translations, newspaper articles etc. All the material has been collected in a span of time dating back to 2005, then reviewed to finally create 'Mr. Dosti'. For Accademia di Brera in Milan, 'Writing Jobs' will be a site-specific poster, where the only phrase chosen 'Traditions of Bums Remind Us of Death Thorns', will be printed in A3 poster version and installed in different parts of the academy in the context of announcement.
