In this solo exhibition, Eritrean artist Petros Ghebrehiwot reflects on the collective behavior of people. He explores the reasons that bring small or large number of individuals together as well as the capabilities, experiences, characteristics and power they hold.
Every individual has a shelter where he/she practices a private life with family members or alone. Individuals also form crowds who get together for common social, cultural, religious or political reasons. The works deal with the aggregated human spirits and their deeds, through architecture, drawing, painting and assemblage.
