Valdeta Vuciterna



The personal and concrete things we serve in our daily lives are images that I materialize and try to print on paper and extract from it something unique and provocative, always transforming it into something completely different from its origin. I use clothes because they are something that everyone can relate to a personal event of their own, we all wear clothes of some kind, but at the same time some of the clothes I have used are especially for this exhibition, some are quite unfamiliar for my generation. I tried to capture a moment of time and the personality of the people who wore them. It is also easy for any person to imagine their interpretation in clothing, and give the opportunity to personally read the meaning of these works. The first dress I worked on was a shirt that accidentally fell into my hands, but to me it was unfamiliar. as much as I had to take home. I thought someone wore it, loved and cared for it, the ticket was so redeemed that it was illegible. I imagined someone else looking at that shirt, and imagining a story quite different from the times, and that gave me more incentive to take it and transform it into a work of art. Now I keep seeing more and more outfits and imagining more and more stories behind it. But motive and medium are not the last words in my graphics, because it also matters the sensitivity to the material on one side and the form of how it is presented graphically on the other side, trying to bring the graphics into the aesthetic frames of a contemporary graphic. My work refers to my life and movement in the environment where I move and consume. Consumption of clothing, in particular, has always provoked me to evolve the symbolism of life, wedding, and in general our indigenous way of life but that does not constitute in itself any political or historical message.
