Peace and Love at Uniq Istanbul
ISTANBUL – Hürriyet Daily NewsIstanbul’s newly-opened culture and art space Uniq Istanbul will host an exhibition by Philippine artist Norge Reichenbach. Titled #PeaceandLove, the exhibition will open at Uniq Gallery on Nov. 13.
Born in Manila, Philippines, Reichenbach has lived in 16 different countries with her family, including nine years spent in Turkey. She developed her interest in painting while frequenting art museums and gallery exhibitions during these travels.
Subsequently, she branched out to sculpture and ceramics with equal passion. In the exhibition, which will be the first exhibition held at Uniq Istanbul, Reichenbach will showcase some famous icons who had been or are still involved in peace-making such as the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Michael Jackson, Angelina Jolie and Malala Yousafzai.
Its emphasis reflects the concepts of peace, the state of balance, understanding in yourself and others, and the acceptance of differences and tolerance. Art works in the exhibition consist of oil on canvas paintings, ceramic and bronze sculptures.
Reichenbach has participated in group shows such as Artquake Art Biennale, Mika-Der Bazaar Exhibition, Art Has Wings by Sotheby’s, Chianciano Art Biennale and Istanbul My Love.
Sponsored by Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul, #PeaceandLove can be visited until Dec. 15.
