In collaboration with Tirana International Film Festival, Gallery On The Move is proud to present video works by Dutch artist Esmé Valk. 'Sundays' is a presentation of the artist's films created between 2006 and 2013. The films 'What belongs to the present' (2013), 'Guest House' (2009), 'Mappings may themselves dance along with dancers dancing' (2007), 'Lunchtime Tracking' (2007), 'Untitled' (2007) and 'Sundays' (2006) will be exhibited during the 15th edition of Tirana International Film Festival from November 3 until November 11, 2017.

For Esmé Valk (born 1977, Wijhe, the Netherlands), the notion of movement is key to her practice. She is particularly interested in social choreography and the relationship between movement, social processes, and history. Valk received her MA in Fine Art from the Piet Zwart Institute (2008) and her BA in Fashion Design (2000) from AKI ArtEZ Academy for Art & Design in Enschede. For her installation Showcasing Today's Essentials she was awarded the International Contemporary Art Prize Diputació de Castelló 2011.

Valk was a resident at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, Air Berlin Alexanderplatz (together with artists' initiative ADA), IAAB in Basel, and the Goethe Institute in Dresden. She received project grants from the Mondrian Fund (2009, 2010, 2012) and CBK Rotterdam (2010, 2016). She has exhibited at Boijmans van Beuningen museum Rotterdam, SMBA Amsterdam, Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht, Cobra Museum Amstelveen, Kunsthaus Raskolnikow Dresden, Kunsthalle Basel, EACC Castelló, SMART Project Space Amsterdam and National Gallery of Arts Tirana.
