PRIDE 2018

Love is love and nothing in the world can change it.  Being a part of a pulsing crowd is transformational. Everybody smiling, everybody sharing their happiness, everybody welcoming everyone. At Pride, love is all that matters, regardless of colours, genders, ages or anything else. Although many say ‘yes, I support same-sex relationships’, when it comes to action, some tend to shut up and stay silent. … Continue reading PRIDE 2018

Print! Tearing it up (exhibition review)

Chisenhale Gallery: NO SHOW

How would it feel if there was no text in this post? Strange? Weird? Empty, to say the least. Such exact feeling did I receive from visiting the Chisenhale Gallery. There is currently Paul Maheke’s A Fire Circle for a Public Hearing on, however, when our class visited the venue, it was dead, turned off. So, what can one learn from attending a performative exhibition … Continue reading Chisenhale Gallery: NO SHOW
