Mozambique: That´s the way it is here

A joint exhibition about Mozambique by the photographer Mara Catalán and the painter Mariana Laín at CSA La Tabacalera.

At the beginning of 2010 Mara Catalán visited Nampula, Mozambique. During her trip to that country, she travelled throughout the coast and the rural area of Mato, visiting several health clinics in the region. Mara was fascinated by everything she saw and, carrying always around her Rollei camara, she was able to portrait the people she met along her journey. She was thus able to freeze in time their gazes, their environment, and the social and economic situation where they lived. Through her photos, Mara offers us a poem which opens a window to life in that part of Mozambique.

From these images in black and white, we are proposing a dialogue between Mara´s photography and the paintings of Mariana, which contribute a more plastic art aspect to the show. This joint exhibition takes us to Africa through different techniques and formats aiming at interpreting its essence and colors as geometries with natural pigments, paintings over synthetic glass, primitive portraits and a map of Africa with eyes looking at us.
