Galeria e Bregdetit, 2019, Vlorë, Albania.
In June 2019 Galeria e Bregdedit has opened its door in Vlora, south of Albania, after one year of collaboration between the curator and founder Elian Stefa and Parasite 2.0. The interior of the gallery is divided into two parts by a holographic curtain. The first space pushes the white-cube concept to an extreme, where the interior seems completely isolated and distant from the physical rules of the exterior. On the other side of the curtain, a rough space dedicated to residencies and to display artworks of big dimensions was completely undressed from every form of finishes and left naked, with at the center a light square and a series of modular furniture that can provide different spatial settings. The exterior space, called Concrete Dunes, is a garden and space for performances, mixing plants and artificial dunes, creating a multilevel space where the stage and the audience are completely and continuously mixed.
Thanks to Hotel Picasso for the special support.
