at Blackburne House, Main Hall
2 – 30 September 2010

Solo exhibition of black and white drawings by Alice Lenkiewicz. A postmodern fairytale about a woman’s magical journey. A Bride runs away on her wedding day, hitchhikes through America, meets a fairy prince who shows her a land of peace, love and harmony. Was it all just a dream or can she make her dream come true?

‘Veiled kisses soon betrothed…

…only to discover, a dream within a dream’

You can follow this illustrated poem around the walls of the hall, 20 pictures for 20 lines. I wonder if it’s autobiographical and is it really a dream?
