Sislej Xhafa

BIOGRAPHY

Advisory Board member since 2016

Born in Peja, Kosovo in 1970, artist Sislej Xhafa is based in New York. He is known for his artistic investigations into the social, economical and political realities associated with the various complexities of modern society. Over the years, Xhafa has highlighted his artistic work with economic and social themes, political realities, as they interact with the protean variety of modern society. His investigations, for example, into the phenomena of tourism or forced illegality use a minimal language and they are at the same time ironic and subversive, practicing indifferently a wide range of media, from sculpture to drawing, from performance to photography.
