It opens tomorrow in Milan, at the New Morone Gallery , the personal exhibition of the young artist Eltjon Valle, There Will Be Oil. In this first edition at the Milanese gallery the Albanian artist presents to the public a series of new works, paintings and sculptures, belonging to the The Marinz Project.This is the main project the artist has been working on for years, taking care of the delicate situation of planet Earth. The most recurrent theme in this exhibition is that of the ephemeral: life in all its transience, similar to a ray of light that quickly crosses a thick darkness, making the darkness even darker when it goes out. Butterflies and insects, ephemeral forms par excellence of animal life, are represented here in a state of rest, but it is the calm after the storm. In fact, the fragility of life is clearly perceived in every square centimeter of Eltjon Valle's work.
The artist thus becomes a naturalist, in an autopsy of nature and its anatomy; he is no longer interested in human anatomy, but instead carries out an autopsy of the earth.
The exhibition, accompanied by the appropriate related catalog of critical texts by Francesco Poli and Astrit Cani, will remain open to the public until 1 February 2014.
Eltjon Valle was born in Kucova in the 1984. Lives and works in Milan, Tirana and Berlin. He graduated in 2009 from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, Milan.
