About Ilir Kaso

Born in 1982 in Permet, he graduated in 2005 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Tirana, where he currently works as a lecturer. Winner of several national awards, he is currently completing a Master in Visual Anthropology at the Institute for Albanology Studies of Tirana. The work performed by the artist is part of a project started in 2013, a result of the diversion of several rivers in the south and is a project that highlights the close relationship between man and nature. The ritual of diving in the river is not only an act of defiance, but also a rite of maturation. This, spiritual and essential image, becomes iconographic in the same moment in which the body is preparing to touch the surface of the water.
