Adrian Paci: Lost Communities

$80.00 NZD

The volume presents the iconic works of Albanian artist Adrian Paci which have earned him a world reputation. Emigration, being lost in a strange world, the search for a new identity and longing for things and people that have been lost form the central topics in his work.


  • Accompanying essays take up this politically topical subject and examine Paci’s oeuvre from various angles
  • Features an interview with the artist that rounds out the volume


Adrian Paci emigrated from Albania to Italy with his family in the late 1990s. His own experience of flight, of giving up shared communities and his searching for a new identity have left their mark on his artistic work. Over the last 20 years expressive works have been created in the form of videos, photos, painting and sculptures which treat these existential experiences.
