HOTel, Installation 2.5 x 10 m

HOTel, Installation 2.5 x 10 m 2014/2016 - The first three letters, lit up by electric bulbs, are perceived by the artist as leftovers or remnants of the times past. The process of destroying a former system is often found in countries in transition, as is the artist’s country of origin, where the transition from one system to another, is reflected even on the facades of the urban buildings and industrial complexes that have yet to undergo privatization entering the new (often failed) democratic systems. This is also reflected in the “HOTel” artwork, a synonym for an urban object, narrating the story of a town that was meant to boost the economy during communist Albania.
