Anri Sala

Anri Sala (born 1974, Tirana) is a leading contemporary artist whose early videos and films mined his personal experience to reflect on the social and political change taking place in his native Albania. Winner of the Young Artist Prize at the 2001 Venice Biennale, Sala has attached a growing importance to sound in his work, creating remarkable pieces in which he recasts sound's relationship to the image.

Sala's work has been shown in solo exhibitions at the Serpentine Gallery, London, England (2011); Musée d'art contemporain, Montreal, Canada (2011); Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (2008); and ARC Musée d'art moderne de la Ville de Paris (2004), as well as in numerous group exhibitions internationally, including the Venice Biennale (2003 and 2001), Yokohama Triennial (2001) and Manifesta 3, Ljubljana (2000).
