SARA MEALHA | Ne Pas Plier
2 February - 18 March 2023
Sara Mealha's project for Zaratan's exhibition space will be characterized by painting, directly on the wall, a series of graphic compositions made from a set of drawings prepared in 2020. The drawings are words or expressions in French taken from films, interviews and texts. The letters are sometimes interconnected in an understandable way, other times jumbled up, removing the referent and shifting the focus only to the composition.
Guided tour with the artist on March 4th at 18:00.
