We All Ran Around The Backyard | Të Gjithë Kemi Vrapu Rreth Oborrit

19 April / Prill – 10 May / Maj, 2019

I keep dreaming about what is gone, moments that happened and shaped my identity. What do we talk about when we talk about “the” elephant in the room?
Moments we hide, stories that hurt, memories that are still alive, that touched us that touch us again.
'We all ran around the backyard' features five larger than life figure on a 'dance' following each other like they want to catch each other. Each body represents a moment in time, a story clearer than another. Stretched pieces everywhere like they don’t want to miss even a minute, glass engravings on the bodies like fossils on stones.

Vazhdoj ëndërroj për atë çfarë ka ik, momente që kanë ndodh dhe kanë formuar identitetin tim. Për çfarë flasim kur flasim për "elefantin" në dhomë?
Momentet që fshihen, tregimet që dëmtojnë, kujtimet që janë ende gjallë, që na kanë pas prek e prekin sërish.
"Të gjithë kemi vrapu rreth oborrit" konsiston në pesë figura më të mëdha se në realitet, të ndërthurura në një 'valle' pas njëri-tjetrit ashtu sikur të donin të kapeshin mes tyre. Secili trup përfaqëson një moment në kohë, një tregim pak më qartë se një tjetër. Duke u zgjatuar me pjesë kudo sikur të mos donin të humbinin qoftë dhe një minutë, gdhendur në qelq mbi trupat e tyre si fosile në gurë.
