ANDREA DOJMI is a visual artist, film director, photographer, painter, sculptor and writer. His work is the continuous recording from a stream of consciousness using different media. His recurring themes are unity, multiplicity, trasformation and rebirth, loss of identity and awakening, individual spiritual crisis and community, former education system and its spatial organization. His films are a fragmentary narration with a granular aesthetics where the themes interweave, pervaded by a constant serenity that at times can reveal tragedy or enlightenment. His sculptures and installations are hybrid but familiar structures. Elements of design and urban architecture, military setups and sport equipments entwine to show the essence beyond all the psychological suggestions. For both films and sculptures, actions and shapes take us back to a remote corner of our experience and imagination, just shifting their perception or function to reveal an "hidden-complex-organization". Fictional goes over functional, space-time dissolve moved by the intuitive unitary intelligence we come from. Andrea Dojmi has exhibited internationally, in solo and group shows, as well as in film festivals, such as: Sharjah Art Foundation – Arab Emirates; The Music Center – Los Angeles; The Tetley – Leeds. Fluent – Santander; Fondazione Merz – Turin; Festival de Cannes; Torino Film Festival; Directors lounge – Berlin; Festival du Nouveau Cinéma, Montreal; Thessaloniky Film Festival.
