Albanian artist Najada Hamza opened her personal exhibition in the gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts. The artist says that the exhibition is conceived in three sections "Because hope gives me strength, not to be afraid", "Let us live, one day we will die" and "Rosa Mundi".
"The artist always looks for a motive to raise the work. But it was not my intention to rely on the Middle Ages, although I greatly appreciate the enlightenment of that period, even though it is considered a dark period. In this case, I am inspired by some parts of the art history of this period, which are medieval tapestries, which for me are a love, as they are a very important part of my artistic formation ", says the artist Najada Hamza.
"In the first room are the helmets that present the psychological and mental isolation that we had during this very difficult year, to defend ourselves against something we did not see. Then we come to the second room where we have the armor, the physical distancing we have to keep by rejecting each other, only that we were in a war that we had to experience", the artist says.
Through "Rosa Mundi" the artist gives voice to the hope for the normalization of earthly life, because hope for her is the essence of life itself
"The rose has been something that has accompanied me all the time I did the works. From the flower cycle, I selected Rosa Mundi. Red is found throughout all works. This culminates in the last hall, which turns into a great installation ", concludes Najada Hamza.
The exhibition will be open in the gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts
