The project has travelled all the way to Spain to be installed at Garabia in ZAWP Bilbao, and artistic space in the Zorrotzaurre peninsula. The exhibition opened on the 13th of November with the participation of The Old Timey String Band and can be visited until the 6th of December. This showcase has been possible thanks to the support of CNCNE and Ffotogallery and of course Spain arts & culture. I would specially like to thank ZAWP for hosting us for the installation and for being such an inspiring creative entity.
