“Between Pattern and Shadow” with the artist Olson Lamaj

These days, with the support of Professor Shpend Bengu, in the auditoriums of the Albanian University, near the Department of Art Design, the Albanian artist, Olson Lamaj, was invited to present his latest photographic project “Between Pattern and Shadow” to the students.

Although a young artist, he has a considerable body of work that relates to contemporary life in Albania and to more universal and timeless meaning systems that extend beyond immediate conditions. Lamaj’s projects emphasize the semiotic saturation – and the mysterious, almost mystical qualities – of objects and images associated with political ideologies of various kinds. His artworks function as a collective mythography of the present, laying the foundations for the design and creation of new myths.
