With the first lockdown in spring 2020, I had to cancel a long-planned artistic residency in Tirana/Albania. During an intensive, purely virtual exploration, I approach this country to present and artistically reflect on my research in diagrams and mappings of texts and images.
Inscribed in an abstracted city map, ‘Drawing from an Untravelled Land 1’‘ tells of the serious transformation of Tirana’s urban landscape during the last few years, using selected examples.
In ‘Drawing from an Untravelled Country 2‘ the recent history of Albania since the emergence of the national movement around 1870 is presented in an artistic mapping.
