Ervina Halili's work in verses, essays or sound poetry has mainly to do with a very focused concept which esthetically is projected as a repetitive circling. This circle absurdly in her work is projected as an organic universal circle. Culture, ideologies, religions, nations as a political concept are the symptoms of the manifestation of the human survivorship of the circle.

The slumber of Octopus (Der Schlaf des Oktopus) projects self - cannibalism metonymically as a self- destruction of our own collective emotional intelligence that we repress as pre-ego while almost organically live a conventional political ethic. 

Ervina Halili is Q21 Writer-in-Residence in June recommended by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs.
