Just Hanging Around is a project by Flaka Haliti, selected for the first participation of

The curtain in Just Hanging Around functions as a performance object or a hanging sculpture aimed to embody different subjectivities of reading, by subverting temporal relations between the artist in a display, the relations of Stacion - Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina program at an art fair, or the relation between the public and the art fair.
