Iva Lulashi (b. 1988, Tirana, Albania) now lives and works in Milan. In 2016, she graduated from the Fine Art Academy of Venice. Her artistic work stems from still photographs and frames that reflect the visual language of the Albanian history, which has not consciously been lived, and that are combined with erotic clips, thus blurring the boundaries between the alembics of the propaganda in the films, sex scenes, and healthy outdoor activities.
Among her solo exhibitions are “Passione cola, passione scorre” [Passion drips, passion flows] at Prometeo Gallery, “Vicino e altrove” [Nearby and elsewhere], double solo exhibition with Regina José Galindo at Prometeo Gallery, “Love as a Glass of Water” at Salzburger Kunstverein (Salzburg, Austria), “Eroticommunism” at Prometeo Gallery, “Frames” at Villa Rondinelli, Archivio Porcinai (Fiesole), and “Where I feel there I am” at TRART (Trieste).
