Nelly Haliti’s video installation “Jours: Mois: Anées” offers an immersion in a self-erasing story, with images shot in 16 mm in the ruins of a communist era monument built in 1981 on the Buzludzha peak in Bulgaria. Images run in a loop, moving from one screen to the next—they take the viewer to a remote and forgotten place.
Born in 1987, Nelly Haliti lives and works in Geneva. She has presented her work in several Swiss institutions, including Fri-Art (Fribourg), the Corner College (Zurich), the Centre d’art contemporain (Geneva), The Rada (Locarno), the Museo de Arte Colonial de Quito and the Taller Santa Rosa de Lima. She partakes in the performance program of Manifesta 11 and she will be a resident at the Swiss Institute in Rome in 2016-2017.
