On November 25th, Mallorcan artist, Francesca Martí opened an exhibition of new work titled, Transformation, at the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in Bratislava. The exhibition was curated by Pilar Ribal and Kees van Twist, and included about 70 works that were created over the last 17 years. As Martí states, “The transformation exhibition is the result of an evolution from 2000-2017, with dreams, working with passion and dedication, with satisfaction and only a very few disappointments.”
Among the works included in the exhibition were her Ma’at sculpture (2017), of the Egyptian goddess of harmony, justice and equilibrium, made of mirror-polished and rough cast aluminium, the animated video piece, The Believers, (2017), and the mixed-media sculpture, The Fly in the Pigment (2016).
Transformation was made possible thanks to a successful crowdfunding platform to which many people contributed money, including Helen Cummins who was also in attendance for the opening night.
