Adelita Husni-Bey

Power and independence; personal and collective memory, an all-invading system of pressure and influence affecting our behaviours; hierarchy and potential forms of alternative pedagogy that can boost critical, independent thinking and a feeling of cooperation and responsibility. The micro-utopias, the resistance systems, options for civil disobedience and self-determination; these are the topics that the Libyan-Italian artist Adelita Husni-Bey addresses in her works. Her work thus combines an ideal character with a bond with a global, extremely relevant scenario.

Despite her deep bent for the painting art, in addition to drawing Husni-Bey uses installations, videos and performance and organises farranging, complex situations with the direct involvement of many characters.
