****************************************************************
Alban Hajdinaj
****************************************************************

++++ Alban Hajdinaj lives and works in Tirana, Albania. Selected exhibitions: Tirana Biennial 2001, Beautiful Strangers, IFA Galerie, Berlin/Bonn 2001, 48th Venice Biennial 1999.

++++ Alban Hajdinaj works with objects and with images of objects that appear through photographs or paintings. The objects are usually ready-mades and belong to the simple domestic life, one could say that they are banal, even kitschy. Through matching objects and images, the artist creates unusual contexts full of tension. They are charged with the pressure to make a choice. And itís a hard, essential choice between good and bad. However the works of Alban Hajdinaj are not dogmatic, but contradictory and full of a certain atmosphere of innocence despite the traumatised and painful context where the artist himself comes from. (Iara Boubnova)
