Driant Zeneli

Driant Zeneli (1983, Shkoder, Albania), vive tra Milano e Tirana.

Come si spingono i confini dei nostri limiti senza diventare supereroi? Il regno del possibile può essere in equilibrio con quello dell'immaginario? Al centro della ricerca di Zeneli è la ridefinizione dell'idea di fallimento, utopia e sogno come elementi che aprono alternative possibili. Partendo dalla storia di suo padre nel suo film ‘When I grow up I want to be an Artist’ (2007) Zeneli combina una storia personale, collettiva e politica, aggiungendo elementi come: l'ironia, il mito, il falso, l’utopia, i sogni, il tradimento e la trasformazione. Questi elementi sono presenti nelle sue opere più recenti, cinematografiche o performative, così come nel suo costante impegno con diverse istituzioni educative dove presenta la storia di "artisti falliti", con l'obiettivo di includere questa ricerca nel curriculum delle scuole d'arte. Il film è usato da Zeneli per scolpire il luogo e il tempo, per giocare con l'architettura, la storia e le diverse storie che possono essere tra loro collegate. La performance è utilizzata da Zeneli come un intervento partecipativo, dove l'artista attiva un significato che prende vita con gli spettatori, i quali diventano partecipanti..

Ha rappresentato Padiglione Albanese al 58 ° Esposizione Internazionale d'Arte - Biennale di Venezia, 2019.

Nel 2017 ha vinto MOROSO Prize e nel 2009 the Young European Artist Award Trieste Contemporanea.
