Balkan Artists’ Guild (BAG) is proud to present the first solo ‘You Just Don’t Talk About It’ exhibition in London by Young British Artist Award winner Alketa Xhafa Mripa, which runs from 12 – 22 March 2015, Venue: 39 Warple Way, London, W3 0RX. Open daily: 10 am – 5pm.
This exhibition brings together new work that reflects on the artist’s experience as a daughter, mother and citizen in between two nations, London, her current home, and her homeland, Kosovo.
‘You Just Don’t Talk About It’ presents a complex meditation upon issues of gender and societal taboos around women, exploring subjects ranging from the challenges and joys of motherhood, and caring for aging parents, to remembering women who are the survivors of sexual violence.
For Alketa, these subjects are not off-limits but necessary topics in a world of rapidly-shifting values.
