Join us at Hand Held Thursday eve, July 1st 6-8pm, for the opening of Collette Dane's 'Himalayan Annapurna: A handmade book installation accompanied by works on paper.
This exhibition will contain a collection of miniature books and mixed media works on paper exploring the Himalayan landscape of the Annapurna region made in response to Collette's undertaking of a 16 day trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal, amid lush valleys, icy rivers and towering mountains.
In this exhibition, I want to convey the sense of awe that these huge mountains possess and instill in oneself, while highlighting the beauty of the natural landscape we so much forget living in cities. My books focus on matching images and text, revealing an inner narrative, relating to private thoughts and contemplation.
The exhibition runs from July 1-24
