Anri Sala (b. 1974, Tirana, Albania) constructs transformative, time-based works through multiple relationships between image, architecture, and sound, employing these as elements to fold, capsize, and question experience. His works investigate ruptures in language, syntax, and music, inviting creative dislocations, which generate new interpretations of history, supplanting old fictions and narratives with less-explicit, more-nuanced dialogues.
His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at: Kunsthaus Bregenz (2021); Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern, Houston (2021); Centro Botín, Santander (2019); Mudam, Luxembourg (2019); Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Turin (2019); Museo Tamayo, Mexico City (2017); New Museum, New York (2016); Haus der Kunst, Munich (2014); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2012); Serpentine Gallery, London (2011); Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (2008); and ARC, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2004). He has also participated in major group exhibitions and biennials internationally, including the 57th Venice Biennale (2017), documenta (13) (2012), the 29th São Paulo Biennial (2010), the 2nd Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art (2007), and the 4th Berlin Biennale (2006). In 2013, he represented France in the 55th Venice Biennale.
