Albanian and Bosnian artists exploring "soft meals" in Tirana

Three Bosnian and Albanian artists have come together in Tirana in a collective exhibition called “Soft Meal” as a research project revealing food as cultural value.

“This value carries all the meaningful symbols of the society we live in. A value that varies from one work to the other,” says Albanian curator Blerta Hoçia about the exhibition featuring Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Adela Jusic and Nardina Zubanovic and Albania’s Beskida Kraja.


In the case of “Family” of Beskida Kraja, the bread wraps in a sacral ritual the life of the couple. In the video-installation “Food with experience” of Nardina Zubanovic, this value becomes a game which triggers the imagination, transforms the ordinary alimentary context and questions the gender role clichés and stereotypes into an ironic and humorous way. In “A dinner for three,” a video performance by Adela Jusic, eating is a powerful ritual with symbolic representation of gender, religious and generational differences.
