On the eve of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, this exhibition looks at the immediate repercussions in Eastern Europe in the wake of this historical event.

Pierre Alozie, a Franco/Nigerian freelance photojournalist, leaves Berlin and travels east, to the Velvet revolution in Prague, Romania and the end of the Ceausescu dictatorship, Bulgaria and the last communist party congress, the breakup of the Yugoslav Federation, Georgia and Azerbaijan.

The end of the USSR, a confederation of many states, latent ethnic, nationalist and territorial tensions degenerated into multiple conflicts.

Sirpa Pajunen-Moghissi

‘Icons of Nature’ - Sirpa Pajunen-Moghissi’s current series of work - draws on the traditions of icon painting. But golden halos have turned into large abstract shapes that play on the pictorial surface, echoing the rhythms of traditional iconography, but speaking the language of contemporary image making.  And here, nature is the subject of worship, not human gods or saints.
