“Bewegung” (Movement)

The “movement – triptychs”, actually one image in three parts, are exceedingly contradictory: One is withdrawn, pale, narrow and defensive, the other is vehemently expressive, wild moves and strongly colored. One is Surrounded by a bare white color, the other is illuminated from the inside an behind itself. The pictures in this series are a reaction to and reflect the artists situation after she moved from Albania to Germany, when she had to realign and finally found herself. A new language, a different culture, unfamiliar faces and their unwritten rules.
Both images show the range and tension between- retreating and advancing, being thrown into something and getting active own your own account, to disappear and dissipate, to inhale and exhale, those images show strength and fortitude.
