Elsa Martini  Solo Exhibition

"The Happiness of the Others" is an ongoing series, divided into three parts.

The first and second one relate to the Second World War in Austria and Italy, where the focus is on women and children who did not actively participate in this war. However, they were family members of men who served as soldiers in the SS or in other positions. These two series are being shown at the Nippon Gallery.

Elsa Martini –

Artist: Elsa Martini

Elsa Martini graduated from the Academy of Arts in Tirana in 1996 in monumental painting class, then certified by the University of Applied Arts in Vienna in 2011 and Institut für Kulturkonzepte in 2012. 

Martini is a conceptual artist who has developed a complex artistic practice over the decades. She sought the approach to broaden the horizons of the works, which move between painting and multimedia, site-specific and performance. The artist deals with tensions between the individual, society and environment; examines and reflects on personal behavior and social trauma, questioning boundaries, space, environment, and gender issues. Elsa Martini is also passionate about exploring other cultures. At different times, we witness vernacular influences in her works.

Her works have been part of numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries, museums, art festivals, biennials, and critical formats. Among them at Albanian Video Days Belvedere 2, Vienna 2019; XIII. Zwitschetmaschine Gallery 2018 and Nordgalerie 2007 Berlin, Biennale of Young European and Mediterranean Artists – Performance, 2008 Apulia IT; Furies Festival Châlons-en-Champagne, Festival Les Invites de Villeurbanne, Parc de la Villete Paris / performance with the theater company Cumulus, FR 2005; Nuovo Teatro_Nuovo, Action-Painting, Naples 2003.

Her work in India has been shown in Bangla Biennale, site-specific installation 2019, and various alternative projects with NM as: “Golden Thread”, video and site-specific installation Suri WB 2018, Gr exh. Pondicherry city Gallery 2018, “Mirroring”, site-specific installation Komdhara, WB 2017. 

She is the founder and curator of the international art collective NATA. Curatorial practices have always been part of her work.
