Dardan Zhegrova will be part of the residency in Belgrade, hosted by Heartefact Fund
Dardan Zhegrova is an artist, journalist and human right activist based in Prishtina, Kosovo. As an artist, his physical works/installations are most often based on poems / text that deal with partially fictional and actually experienced events, which have been shown in numerous galleries and art spaces locally and internationally. As a freelance journalist he has worked for various local and regional media and organizations, mostly covering culture and its socio-political effect on society. As a board member of YiHR Kosova, and as a human rights activist for over fifteen years, his whole practice tends to challenge conservative views that impose any kind of discrimination towards marginalized groups, with focus on LGBTQ+ issues.
Artistic Residencies Reconnection 2.0 are part of Reconnection 2.0 project financed by the European Union Office in Kosovo and implemented by Qendra Multimedia [Prishtina] and Heartefact Fund [Belgrade].
