Born in 1974, Tirana, Albania.
Lives and works in Berlin.
Since the 1990’s, Anri Sala has been working in a range of media including video, photography, installation, and more recently drawings and sculptures. His work explores the boundaries between image and sound in order to generate carefully assembled time-based moments which overlap one another. Through a new form of language, his work opens to multiple perspectives and interpretations, bringing together the past, present and future. According prominence to light, sound and space design, Anri Sala’s work is often presented in immersive spaces, thus stimulating our senses and creating a link between the body and the architecture.
Anri Sala has been awarded a number of prizes during his career, such as the The Vincent Award, Den Haag in 2014, and the Biennale di Venezia (Young Artist Prize) in 2001, among others.
