Florim Hasani/ Volumes and drawings

Originally from Kosovo, Florim Hasani born in 1977, develops his work around the figure of the house. The house as an intimate and domestic space and also a metaphor for the country left by the artist. Childhood, memory, as well as destruction and ruin are recurrent themes addressed in his models and drawings. The "figure" of the house is central to Florim’s work, it seems alive, often treated in an anthropomorphic vein in the same way as the tree with which it frequently overlaps. Roots, origins, past, heritage and cultural symbols are promising themes that echo the artist’s personal history. Why this title which makes one think first of a position of naval battle? Because it first evokes the precision that characterizes Florim's work: that of the line in his drawings and this concern for finish always present, even on a very small scale. Because it then evokes the (mathematical) rigor of the architect who imprints the creative process of Florim Hasani. Some of these drawings can be understood as projects, architectural sketches nevertheless remaining works in their own right. which he realizes himself (on a large scale, or model) thereafter. : sign identifying the buildings of the refugee camps set up following the war in Kosovo at the end of the 90s as part of the UN intervention mission.
