About 20 new paintings and 6 ceramic pieces that were created by Kanaria this year will be shown in this exhibition.

*Bestiaries introduce and classify animals and plants that we all know about - yet what is more interesting to me about bestiaries is how they include both the realistic and the imaginary, as if they all exist together in the nature. Reality and imagination, hopes and fears. Real beings, together with stories of fantasies take us to another world.
