Almacén Gallery is happy to announce the opening of a new exhibition:

Eye of The Mountain
By artist Michal Sophia Tobiass

Opening: Thursday, 24.11.2022, 8 pm
 

In the exhibition Eye of the Mountain, Michal Sophia Tobiass presents for the first time paintings inspired by cave drawings and ancient Egyptian mythology. The paintings are set in a constellation made of holes in the gallery walls. The exhibition is dedicated to her uncle Michel Tobiass, after whom she is named, a painter who was killed in a car accident at a young age, before he managed to realize his destiny.

Michal Sophia reconstructs the star constellation at the moment of Michel's death by perforating the gallery walls, yet she also changes the constellation by banishing the sun and all the major planets – the moon, Jupiter, Venus, etc., replacing them with her prints – repositioning the suns and stars she created in the sky of his death.
