'Nuevo Rico, Nuevo Pobre'

National Historic Museum in Tirana is pleased to present the Fani Zguro's 'Entrada' (2014). The film 'Entrada' consists in a long assembly process, where dozens of Colombian and Venezuelan soup-opera trailers are cut and assembled in a single file. This project was commissioned by Contemporary Istanbul in 2014 and started during the artist AiR at CP3 in Medellin in 2011.

Fani Zguro was born in 1977 in Tirana. Lives and works in Milan. Zguro graduated at the Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brera in Milan (1998-2007). In 2007 he won the International Onufri Prize assigned by the National Gallery of Arts in Tirana; in 2016 the International Mulliqi Prize of the National Gallery of Kosovo in Pristina and the Best Video-Art award at TIFF Tirana.
