Costume Designer Hana Zeqa brought some of her works and inspiration in front of the audience as part of the ‘artist talk’ at the European Union Information and Cultural Centre in Pristina.
On the 20th of August, Zeqa was invited to share her experiences and pinpoint on different artistic projects she has been involved with recently.
The audience got to know her latest project titled ‘Organic Extimorph’ and the way the project was born and developed afterwards.
“The project integrates technology within the fashion industry, or more accurate revolves around what is today being called ‘wearable technology’. The costume had within itself the motoric sensors and in another dimension it also reflects emotions, because previously I have researched the psychological part of the emotions and the way they affect the body” Hana stated when referring to her new project which has yet to come to implementation in Kosovo’s scene.
Hana Zeqa holds an MA in Costume Design for Performance from UAL: London College of Fashion. Prior to MA, Hana has graduated from the University of Pristina for Stage Design. With a background in music, her experience varies from music, film, video and TV. Having garments and wearable art as the main tool, she is interested in visual experimentation with multimedia and technology. Her latest work at London College of Fashion involved Wearable Technology in interactive performance and it was initiated at Creative Dance Technology Lab CDTL and East London Dance. The costume created was presented at Sadler’s Wells Theater and was also exhibited at Oxo Tower London and London College of Communication.
“I am very open to collaborations with students of design and fashion in Kosovo, as well as with artists who find it attractive to work with this interesting approach to fashion and technology” Zeqa said.
Hana is also known for her Costume Design at the artistic performance “Shkrepëtima” by Petrit Halilaj.
