Charcoal on paper, series of no. drawings, cm 200x210 each
Elton Kore’s artworks are a sort of meditation on time and space in Albanian complex evolution in architecture and building construction, before and later 90s.
In his recent series Untitled, Kore has begun a group of charcoal and pastel drawings based. The series tenuously reflect a blasted and dystopic urban landscape as a result of the social transformations.
Consisting of three large size drawings, Untitled is conceived like a storyboard of an animated short film. From left Kore shows an open view on a street panorama featured by an anonymous building façade without any style or aesthetic decorations. In the middle a close-up displays the architectural and structural details hidden behind the branches of a tree. The scene demonstrates the non-coherence in designing urban buildings, with no natural and vegetal references like conversely happened in most of the history of Architecture. Also the details with a series of window gratings reveal the social individual needs to protect and defend one’s own space. In the end, the third scene is silently shown in its total decay.
