NEW TALENTS 2022
PEP is looking for artists to take part in the 4th edition of its NEW TALENTS exhibition! The selected artists will take part in a group show at 254Forest in Brussels, from January to February 2023.
PEP invites artists from all over the world to explore the photographic medium into its smallest corners. The project enables photographers to share their insights and passions. Together we show the result of those experimentations in a collective exhibition in Berlin or Brussels.
"The Flood" deals with the reminiscence of the disaster that hit Tbilisi in 2015. People died, many families became homeless, a zoo destroyed, and a city in shock. The city became a wilderness full of dangerous beasts. The zoo lost more than 300 animals. An influential head of the Georgian Orthodox Church blamed the floods on the "sin" of the former Communist regime. Which, he said, built the zoo in its current location using money raised from destroying churches and melting down their bells.
