We are very pleased to present the second solo exhibition of Jakup Ferri. In his first solo exhibition in the gallery we presented his videos and drawings.
Now we will show his recent manufactured tapestries.
Jakup Ferri (Prishtina, 1981) partly educated in Kosovo and Amsterdam where completed his residency at the Rijksakademie . Ferri is one of a young generation of artists who, caught up in international exhibitions and foreign residencies, lead a nomadic existence. The fracturing of a life, the ‘here' and ‘there' and the personal experiences this evokes go hand in hand with themes explored within an artistic context.
Ferri’s videos (a highlight on the Istanbul Biënnale, 2005) and drawings (o.a. exhibited in de Hallen in Haarlem, 2010) are characterized by simplicity and directness. Portraying situations where the human being is alienated from his surrounding.
Jakup Ferri lives and workes in Berlin, The Netherlands and Prishtina. His work is now currently on show in Gallery LambdaLambdaLambda in Prishtina .
