 Tipping Points

An exhibition of work by Edgar Ameti.

Principle to Ameti’s work is the precarious balance between existence and erasure in the ongoing practice and experience of day-to-day life. His often large-scale formations allow us to experience absence and revelation hand in hand, intensifying our encounter with the present whilst opening new ways of engaging with the past.

The media used reflect a tension between the ordinary and the extraordinary, allowing for the manipulation of the common functionality of everyday materials to extraordinary effect. The concept of Tipping Points relates closely to Ameti’s work most notably through its focus on distress, recurrence and mediation.

Edgar Ameti was born in Albania where he studied fine art at The Liceu Artistik “Jordan Misja” and The University of Tirana. After moving to North America he studied drawing and painting at Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Canada and their studios in Florence, Italy. Currently he lives and works in the UK. His work has been exhibited across North America and Europe, and has been acquired by several collections, including the Microsoft Art Collection.
