“Cicatriu” Exhibition at the Espai Mercè Sala
Date: from 26 February to 30 March 2019
The exhibition “Cicatriu” (Scar) shows how five women from the same photography and writing workshop, led by Ventura Camacho, have captured moments from their daily lives and also written about experiences that have left them scarred.
This exhibition, an initiative of the Setba Foundation and the Photogenic Festival, will be shown for the first time at the Espai Mercè Sala, to raise awareness and put the spotlight on the scourge of violence against women.
Sandra Balcells photographed Bibi over the course of six months at different moments of her day. She may have been at home, with her dogs, out at her favorite music bar or attending one of the sessions at the photography workshop. All this was done in an attempt to capture her inner self and to show her strength. The complicity between the photographer and the subject is evident throughout the whole sequence.
The exhibition is available to visit from 26 February to 30 May at the Espai Mercè Sala.
