Haystacks, 1989 – ongoing

Photographs from an ongoing series that depicted farmers’ haystacks in Kosovo and Albania, which the artist began documenting in 1988. Presented as a typology, the photographs emphasised the vernacular form of the haystack, while also evoking the monolithic character of  modern sculpture. They not only blurred the line between agrarian tradition and artistic practice, but also the distinction between form and utility.
