Anri Sala, ‘Untitled Halves I’, 2012, Alfonso Artiaco

About Anri Sala

Working in film, photography, and performance, Anri Sala explores ruptures in sound and image and creates moments of overlap among the senses. Often inspired by unanticipated discoveries in his daily life, Sala’s works defy expectation with counter-intuitive reversals and pairings. For example, in the video installation Why the Lion Roars (2008), Sala devised a mechanism that aired films according to the predicted weather in Paris, linking cinematic genres with the vagaries of the climate.

Albanian, b. 1974, Tirana, Albania, based in Berlin, Germany
