’s artistic practice includes mixed media, sculpture, and spatial installation with a decidedly site-specific approach. Appropriation and rearrangement are continuous lines in her works, whereby new aesthetic patterns are created. Haliti emphasizes altered perceptions on a visual level as well as in conceptual methods, to engage in political reflection and geopolitical preoccupations. Mediated by the sensory and by visual fields, territorial boundaries and powers – such as national borders or the dispositions of associations like the UN or the European Union – are brought to negotiation. Importantly, her works steadily confront the languages of identity-construction in order to transcend its categorisations of gender or nationality while introducing detour as a game-plan of resistance. Occupying in-between states, Haliti furthermore challenges humanist perspectives and authority, over-representation and abstraction – not only on a visual level, but also in a conceptual approach through political strategies. Her practice operates as a dialogue between the notions of abrogation and appropriation – the one rejecting the standard and demands of systematic order, and the other making an adaptation of it. The result is the opening of a field for counter-poetics as an ongoing "in-betweenness" inside a dialectical performative space.
