Manifesta purposely strives to keep its distance from what are often seen as the dominant centres of artistic production, instead seeking fresh and fertile terrain for the mapping of a new cultural topography.

Edona Kryeziu, RKS

Edona Kryeziu’s transdisciplinary artistic practice revolves around storytelling through various methods including performative installations, photography and video. Working as a theatre and film maker, her practice sits at the intersections between archival research and mediation through blurring the real and the imaginary.

Her works deal with questions of social and structural participation in postnational realities, diasporic narrations and spaces of resistance. Exploring the subtle boundaries between representation and the spectacle, Kryeziu stages the seemingly mundane and traces the way how the past, present and future reverberate within.
