Location: Salon Galić gallery (Marmontova 3, 21000 Split)
Duration: November 9 - 28, 2022
The exhibition 'Delta Oscar Mike' by the young artist from Korcula, Dea Botica, opens in Salon Galić gallery on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, at 7:00 p.m., and is open until November 28, 2022.
"Delta Oscar Mike", in the form of a photographic diary, shows the artist's two-month voyage on a cargo ship along the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, and West African shores. The author finds motivation for the trip in her heritage and an attempt to understand the male family's maritime tradition. As the daughter and granddaughter of a long-distance sailing captain, the starting point of her artistic research is her family maritime tradition, which disappears without a male heir.
"Delta Oscar Mike in the NATO phonetic alphabet stands for the letters D, O, M. Staying for two months on a cargo ship in the spring of 2018, sailing from the Mediterranean, across the Black Sea to West Africa, Dea gained experience that was previously reserved only for the male members of her family. The ship became her second home."
The curator of the exhibition is Dora Derado.
