The exhibition titled “I look at them, they look back at me” by the Albanian artist Ledia Kostandini at PrivatePrint Studio, brings together a series of mixed media works which unfold impressions, mind images and metaphors of the balcony and the life therein. The concept builds from there to examine the relation between private and public through the works themselves and through their positioning in both the indoor and outdoor spaces of the Studio. This way, the exhibition inherently connects with the practice of PrivatePrint Studio itself, where the borders between the private and public intertwine and are always redefined.

“Private View”

site specific intervention, part of the solo exhibition “I look at them They look back at me” – Skopje, 2019

“The exhibition extends outside, to the Studio’s terrace, with a site-specific intervention – a writing that becomes a traffic sign that draws the visitors’ attention on the landscape as an infinite borderline of the exhibition. It recalls the temporary exclusivity of the view when visiting the exhibition. Instantly, the writing speculates on spatial belongings. And with this, the audience is guided, through their interaction with the works, to re-think the wider concept of private vs. public. Where is the limit to our possession? Whose private view are we part of?”
