PASSION OF PASSION
Through different languages like paintings, etchings, objects, lithographs and artist books, Silvia Brewda invites us to visit different universes, such as the passionate world of football, the thrill of the racing car fans and the mystery of Pandora´s wishes.
These universes flavour our existence, shake the dullness and become elements of freedom.
