Silva Agostini born 1979 in Tirana, is a multimedia artist living and working in Berlin. She attended the Academy of Arts in Tirana and the Berlin University of the Arts, where she graduated as master student in 2005.
In her videos, photographs and performative interventions she concentrates on the relations between nature, culture, technology, history and the human body, beyond subjectivation and objectivation, past and present.
Whether through staging and contextualizing given actualities, working with anthropological studies or elements from art, music and theater history, she creates experiences drawing on alleged contradictions and the (dis-)continuities of time.
Focusing on varying forms of crises, she highlights an emotional accumulation, indicating societies temperature and characterizing the psychology of the day.
Her works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany and Europe, including: Draussenstadt – Call for action, the National Gallery Tirana, Bazament Tirana, Belvedere 21 Wien, Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden, Basis Frankfurt, Grieder Contemporary Zürich, Macedonian Museum of contemporary art Thessaloniki, the Muzeul National de arta contemporana Bucharest, Gallery Isabella Czarnowska Berlin, Kunstsammlung Gera, as well as at the Tirana Biennale. She received the Onufri Award in 2014 and has attended the TICA Residency in 2016 and the Art House in Shkodra 2018. She is a founding member of the project space “Very” in Berlin.
