About

This spring, the Balkan Artists’ Guild (BAG) is proud to announce, You Just Don't Talk About It, a solo exhibition by internationally acclaimed Conceptual Artist and Young British Artist Award Winner (2005), Alketa Xhafa Mripa.

Autobiographical in focus, Alketa’s work draws on a wide range of influences, employing techniques from portraiture, to photography, to film and installation.

This iconic and pioneering display is an intense reflection on the power of motherhood. Alketa takes us on a journey into the greatest of loves, and at the same time the deepest of pains. She explores motherhood not only in terms of how it influences the creation of the self – of identity - but also in terms of how motherhood connects with the societal transformations we experience on an existential level.

 

Alketa explores the relationship between generations and how these relationships impact us both personally and geopolitically.
