In this absurd period of global pandemic, forced to "stay at home", many artists had to reinvent themselves in their daily spaces.
Through their creativity, they told how they lived in their real, virtual or interior spaces, to externalize their inner world to the world.
One of them is Rozafa Shpuza, photographer and poet who lives between Tirana and Shkodër.
The inauspicious news under the pandemic, which arrived in Albania with a frightening intensity from Italy, was also a notice for the Albanians. The day after everyone was questioned. Nobody knew his "opponent" and how long humans would resist the invisible enemy. Anxiety, fear, insecurity for the next day had sat cross-legged, bringing absolute silence to entire cities.
Shpuza's artistic instinct in this very particular situation has turned to tools of expression that have never been seen before.
The artist used the brushes and the frame for the first time. So far he has created 15 paintings. Sometimes working on two frames.
And not just with brushes. The disinfectant wipes that are so frequent in daily use today have become a work tool for her.
Shpuza gave vent to his emotions, guided by a chaotic form, dwelling on the frame his sensations, evocations, his feelings and thoughts.
His paintings are portraits of women, women he met in his life path.
Although Shpuza herself does not know how long her artistic exploit will last, this experience has certainly offered her a form of expression and liberation even within the four walls.
