The “Marhaban Bikom” exhibition is on show between November 10 and 30.
Nicole Dussauze’s Moroccan-themed painting exhibition, “Marhaban Bikom” (Welcome), will be on show in Lagoa this month. The exhibition will be inaugurated on November 10, at 18:00, in the Manuela Vale Gallery at the Mestre Fernando Rodrigues School of Arts, in Lagoa and will be on show until November 30.
This exhibition results from the author’s passion for Morocco, its people and its traditions.
“After having the opportunity to work as a volunteer nurse in the South East desert, I decided to discover this country in depth. I made more than 20 trips, where I discovered the Atlas, the Berber villages, and the beaches of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean… with each trip, I shared more and more traditions, regional foods, and crafts (I even wrote a travel guide!)”, says Nicole Dussauze.
“I fell in love with these people, of extreme kindness and solidarity, which welcomed me with open arms. Where I feel totally integrated, which makes me feel at home, that’s how the idea for this exhibition came about, where I reveal in these modest pieces that I painted, from photos taken myself, my experiences, emotions and memories”, adds the artist.
The exhibition is free of charge and can be visited from Monday to Friday, from 09:30 to 12:00 and from 14:30 to 17:00.
