THE BLANK CONTEMPORARY ART
99 WORDS WITH DRIANT ZENELI
“Why are you interested in the space?” Flora asked me.
“I am curious of those who observe it. I would like to know what there is in the space between your father Bujar, 158 height at Metallurgjik, and the maximum height of the International Space Station (ISS), located 400.00 km far from the terrestrial surface…”
“What is the ISS?”
“The International Space Station functions as a laboratory where experiments are made in condition of microgravity in the law terrestrial orbit. Dedicated to scientific research and managed as a joint project between five different space stations.”
And then Flora’s father, Bujar, asked me with a low voice:
“So what it the sense of all this?”
“The attempt is to create a space in which the work can share with the public a physical as well as a mental dimension. The interview about your perception of space that you gave to Fatmira Nikolli at Metallurgjik, will resonate with the transmission of the streamed images from the International Space Station (ISS), 400.00 km away from the earth surface. Everything will then be catalyzed by the sounds mixed by your daughter Flora (DJ Sulejmani) during the opening of the exhibition. In this way, the public will not only participate, but it will be an integral part of the artwork, as we are all part of the solar system”.
