INSTALLATION : ALBANIAN TRILOGY: A SERIES OF DEVIOUS STRATEGEMS
In his video triptych, artist Armando Lulaj mixes material from the Albanian National Film Archive and newly shot footage to provide new perspectives on defining moments in the country’s isolationist, communist-era history – from the shooting of a whale in the sea (It Wears As It Grows), through the reworking of a slogan imprinted on land (NEVER), to the launch of a captured U.S. military plane into the air (Recapitulation). The installation represented Albania at the 2015 Venice Biennale.
