Machteld Hali Exhibition
Machteld Hali's "Love on Camino" an exhibition of love fantasies.
This exhibition, realised out of the famous Camino walk in Spain, is the incredible work of the very talented local artist and activist Machteld Hali. The Camino or El Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain, has been walked by pilgrims over the last 1200 years.
This body of work "Love on Camino" explores love scenes along the Camino in the context of the convergences of different cultures, languages, nationalities and even flora in visual images with a strong narrative element.
A set of 20 related, A3 sized sepia collagraph prints incorporating multilingual text and repeated patterns and tell the story of Machteld’s Camino, capturing precious moments such as a woman hanging out washing, lovers in a tumbling down loft, and a poem found on a post in a bar in the Alsa Bus Station.
Love on Camino is on display from the 5th - 30th June 2019.
Official Opening Thursday 6 June at 5.30pm.
The Art Bar is open: Wednesday & Thursday 5-9pm; Friday & Saturday 12-3pm & 5-10pm; Sunday 12-6pm.
