Roma Auskalnyte, Suvi Sysi, Inma Herrera: Sanctuary 

A sanctuary is a place of safety and refuge. It is also a sacred place, a shrine or a private cabinet. Its Latin etymology and meaning, sanct-uarium, takes also to conceive it as a container where to keep something inside; protected.

This exhibition, specially conceived for the spaces of Forum Box gallery, displays the works of the visual artists Roma Auskalnyte, Suvi Sysi, and Inma Herrera. Having a unique and particular understanding of the role of art spaces in the present day, Sanctuary has become the perfect metaphor for the artists to speak within a common framework with their intimate and personal voices to display their perspective on this matter.

Their projects address topics regarding the role of the human body with dogmas inspired by certain historic stories, the captivating mysteries of actions, images, and repetitive elements which explore the transformation of materials and surfaces.
