The intimacy among tool, nature and culture makes Foroba Yelen an extraordinary work, awarded with an Honorable Mention at the City to City Barcelona FAD Award 2012.
Through photos, anthropological notes and original pieces, the exhibition traces the artefact’s material and symbolic origin and outlines its integration into the life of a community accustomed to moonlight and the glimmer of flashlights.
Until May 4, 2014
