Oh, My Land ..
22 May- 12 June, 2012
Curator: Shkëlzen Maliqi, Sokol Beqiri
It might seem strange that Mehmet Behluli, one of the most active protagonists of the Kosovar contemporary art scene, presents a personal exhibition after 13 years. Behluli has not held a personal exhibition since 1997, when he held two successive exhibitions, “Balkanik Fables” in “Hani i Dy Roberteve” and in Dodona Gallery. He has been, however, very active as a professor and promoter of conceptual art, in the meantime, while initiating or becoming involved in almost every project and event that marked a period of the great success of Kosovar art in the international scene.
Mehmet Behluli’s new cycle “Oh, my land…” (“O vendi im…”), represents a continuity of his ironic observations and his witty view of reality.
