“Body Language…” – art exhibition exploring borders and space

“Body Language…” a gallery sited installation,  is an artist-led  project exploring borders and space through photography, movement, language and gestures. Over a period of nine months, artist Nicole Zaaroura has worked with families from Syria and Bulgaria, who became  explorers, researchers, and mappists, responding through movement, image and performative processes to museum, gallery and public spaces. Freedom of movement, new space, and a co-creational approach transformed the project.
