Apothecary Gallery CIC is an innovative gallery based in Hammersmith, West London
Apothecary Gallery CIC is delighted to host an exhibition of ink and photography works by French artist Karine Zibaut. Karine has been working with video, ink , text and photography for the last ten years and has recently moved to London. She regularly exhibits in galleries both in France and the rest of Europe (2016 Festival de la photographie d’Angoulême). She is a regular contributor to photograpy magazines such as Platform and has published three books, all available to purchase from her website.
“Between Dreams & Fairy Tale, the reality of imagination. Here is the Land of INK”. This is the first thing that Karine wrote in her Ink work notebook and the words that inspired her subsequent ink works.
Karine explains her works’ relationship to legends and stories by saying “My imagination is bathed in what Tolkien calls Faerie, the kingdom where mythology, religion, history, legends are found … There is the temple of imagination, with infinite resources. Far from being out of touch with reality, it illuminates it. And gives a lot of power. It’s no coincidence that Tolkien’s lyrics are as popular today, and that Harry Potter captivates young and old alike. We need it. …They open a space to create. They carry joy and energy”.
