Adrian Paci's body of work addresses the radical political shifts of his homeland and his experiences as an exile. He reinvented his life after leaving Albania in 1997 when civil war triggered widespread rioting and looting. Fearing for the safety and security of his young family, Paci relocated to Italy. His artistic voice and vision changed as the reality of his experiences at home and abroad began to inform his practice. For him, art and life became interchangeable, one flowing into the other. Through his work, Paci inserted himself into social situations, engaging both his private and public life in an effort to discover (or recover) how we live. By creating works situated in the everyday, Paci reveals the ways in which our lives are interconnected and how we are shaped by our environmental boundaries.
