‘Compulsion’ Tours Spain
MAGDALENA BORS EXHIBITION TOURS IN SPAIN
‘The Art of Domestic Compulsion’, an exhibition of work by the Melbourne-based artist Magdalena Bors, curated by Alasdair Foster, will tour Spain for the next ten months. Commissioned by Galleri Image and now forming part of its permanent collection, the exhibition received rave reviews in Denmark before touring on to Poland in 2014, where it was shown at Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art, Gdansk and Galeria BWA, Jelenia Gora.
The current tour, initiated by CDC through the Red Internacional de Centros de Fotografía, a network of photographic centres around the world, is a co-production between Galleri Image in Aarhus and the Centro Andaluz de la Fotografía in Almería (CAF).
Describing Magdalena Bors’ “exceptional talent”, the Danish critic Henrik Broch-Lips called her images of obsession and fantasy in suburban Australia as “nothing less than magical, sublime and impressive” … “rarely have you seen such intense photos of imaginary scenes”.
