Perspectives 147: Adrian Paci
Library Shelf Location 18.PACI
Publication Date 2005
Description Perspectives 147: Adrian Paci documents the first U.S. solo exhibition of Albanian artist Adrian Paci, who creates video installations, photographs, and drawings that explore traditions from his native country and their place in the culture of present-day Europe. Paci immigrated to Italy in 1997 following the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe, and his work evokes the psychological tension inherent in the immigrant experience. The exhibition included the premiere of a video work that tells the story of the Virgin Mary of Shkodra, an icon that disappeared from the Albanian village of Shkodra and resurfaced as a painting, the Madonna del Buonconsiglio, in a church outside of Rome in the 15th century. It also featured new drawings based on scenes from two films by writer and director Pier Paolo Pasolini; a video documenting the mourning of the artist’s own death; and new photographs of abandoned churches. Includes an essay by Paola Morsiani; documentation of the artist’s career.
