Sabeth Holland – Impossible Seaside, Solo Exhibition
Sabeth Holland remembers:
«My exhibition was set in such a beautiful context, no more than a few steps from the water shore. And more than 1000 kilometers away from home, I felt as I was belonging there. The fir trees so familiar, the Baltic Sea so strange, fascinating, and it was the people that made me feel so welcome. They were so kind and open to me, their interest in my art was deeply touching. – A long time has gone by since, but the memories remained. I feel priveledged and grateful for having made so many friends.»
