2016 Exhibitions


My Liver is Bleeding

“My liver is bleeding" is a common sentiment expressed by patients at the Alemi Neuro Psychiatric Hospital, Afghanistan’s first private mental health clinic, located in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. It’s a local expression meaning simply: “I am unhappy.” Another patient tells the doctor her heart is tight, to let him know she is sad; others tell him they’re impatient, to say they’re angry. 



Cyprus in Time

Photographic display of black and white images taken by Cypriot photographer, artist and journalist Antigoni Solomonidou Droussiotou. This show explores religious and political contrasts, the everyday life, the habits, traditions and moments in time, captured from years of exploring and observing both sides of the island of Cyprus. 



Changing the Landscape

Changing the Landscape, an ambitious new visual arts project by British artist and curator Sarah Kogan, is a profoundly personal and deeply poignant exploration of the cataclysmic destruction, physical, emotional and psychological, wrought by the Battle of the Somme 1916.
