Tahar Alemdar

b. 1979

Born in Prizren, Kosovo; lives in Kosovo.

Conceptually based, Alemdar’s work explores ideas about shared versus personal identity and subjective versus objective realities. In 2002, Alemdar participated in a Tamarind project called Connections that united six artists, each from a different former Republic of Yugoslavia, at Tamarind. The artists worked side-by-side to create lithographs in collaboration with Tamarind printers. They worked together again two years later at the Santa Fe Art Institute under the auspices of a second project grant that Tamarind received from the Trust for Mutual Understanding.
