Feeling at Home


7 July 2018 (historic exhibition)

Come and hear Bulgarian photographer Rossena Petcova talk about her first solo exhibition, Feeling-at-Home Places on display in The Shipley's Lounge until July 23rd, 2018.

This free but ticketed event on 7 July will be hosted by Tyneside writer Elaine Cusack, who helped Rossena stage the exhibition and also features in one of the photographs.

Feeling-at-Home Places is a celebration of North Eastern familial relationships as well as the region's unique urban/natural landscape.

Rossena says:

“I spent almost two years (2015/16) living between Bulgaria and the North East areas of the UK, Newcastle upon Tyne and the nearby coast. I started experimenting with the self image and the landscape around me, as well as I had the opportunity to photograph local people in their homes or intimate places considered like home and to reflect on the idea of home while being away from real home.

I am very happy I have the chance to show my work exactly in the area where the photographs were taken and to invite all the visitors to contemplate with me.”
