The National Gallery of Arts, Tirana presents the group show SiO2 - The Reason of Fragility, How Do We Spell the Word
C A R E when Staring at Glass?
In this exhibition the curators VestAndPage (Verena Stenke/Andrea Pagnes) bring together the works of 23 artists from different countries of the world, including some of the most important contemporary artists of our time. In their curatorial statement VestAndPage write that: “The formation and the constitutional aspects of contemporary art are unpredictable, unexpected, accidental and improbable. They are essentially "disorder" and radical mismatch, and often a result of a critical, divergent thinking contradictory or in opposition to the commonly accepted norms and aesthetic codes. Yet, art is not intended to block the flow of life, because the work of art - in a short stretch of time and space – is capable of projecting a focused vision of the human condition, marking the stages of its evolution or involution.
