Flaka Haliti, winner of the Henkel Art.Award 2013 takes an analytic approach to society and media in her work, and refers in particular to her own experiences as an interloper between different countries andcultures. The artist, who was born 1982, lives and works in her homecity of Prishtina and also in Munich and Vienna. By contrasting an installation of imitated concrete walls with a photo series of cloud motifs including computer drawn faces, Haliti constructs a spatial scenario that is both menacingly narrow and constricted and that also seems to offer an open a broad perspective.
A further work looks at interpersonal relationship between proximity and distance under the condition of the media world, in a video installation about long-distance realtionships in the internet.
The exhibition titel "I see a Face. Do you see a Face." is taken from the photo series with cloud motifs and poses a question that is formulated so that it can also be taken as a statement of fact, In this deliberate dissolution of all clear parameters and ascription.
Flaka Haliti emphasizes her interest in initiating games between reality and fiction, and imaginary proximitiy and spatial distance.
