When Palettes (everything) Become Paintings
October 10 > November 20, 2021
Gallery70 presents Fani Zguro's "When Palettes (everything) Become Paintings" solo exhibition, a presentation of the series by the same title (2021) and of the video "Pushing An Elephant Upwards" (2007). "When Palettes (everything) Become Paintings" starts as magazine pages folded in four and used as palettes to mix colors. Over time they grow out of their initial state of studio process waste, turn into paintings and future projects. "Pushing An Elephant Upwards" is like an out-of-focus battle between the camera lens and car headlights during a nocturnal highway trip. The headlights are out of control. They form a disobedient scenography, a sort of artificial firefly habitat. Lining them up is like making elephant float.
Opening event : October 20, 2021 from 17:30 to 20:00
Venue: Gallery70 , Rruga Abdi Toptani at Toptani Center, ground floor, Tirana
