Exhibition Synopsis:

(Books have the power to take you places that cannot be reached by trains, cars or even spaceships. They have this magic ability to transport the human mind away from the written word, to a very intimate fictional universe, where you can sit with comfort and enjoy the exploration of that imaginary world.

Reading is the journey of self-discovery, where you lose yourself to gain control of yourself. The book becomes a mirror of you, but in a different reality, which offers you a better understanding of yourself.

We as human beings naturally tend to use story-telling to express ourselves, but artists have a different tool for sharing their ideas and stories.)

We look forward to you joining us for this unique experience.
