Despite that I decided to take part in the 6° Arte Laguna Prize. My art work did not consist in a physical work that had to exist. After thinking over I decided to create an empty space to give time to myself to resolve what I wanted from this contest. Starting from the empty space I wrote the text. The section in which I participated was the Sculpture and Installation Prize. I highlight an important element; in the rules the ART.4 - SPECIAL PRIZES "ARTIST IN RESIDENCE", was reserved to artists who participating with two works in the same section. To have the possibility to compete to this prize I decided to participate with two works in the same section. The work was the same, same title, same text.

In case of an extension of the date I will have much time to dedicate on it. On the contrary the desire to take part will disappear with the work of art never-born. Everything contaminate us… Whatever magazine you take. There are many pictures that we notice aesthetically beautiful and deep and we notice as work of art. In a world that is in excess of pictures, we realize that how useless is the nonstop make, the continuous effort to give sense to our works. In this case I’m giving time to my time to don’t be in a hurry. The day of the December 9 I received this e-mail from Arte Laguna Prize’s editorial office. “Hello Klodian, I write to confirm the received of your registration. I ask you to send the images of the works no later than Wednesday December 14.
