64°north by Carmen Marchena Alonso opens 3/April at 76m2

“64°north” is a solo exhibition by Carmen Marchena Alonso, Spanish photographer, mountaineer and climber.  The exhibition features her analogue work from Iceland, the Pyrenees and, prevalently, Greenland, where Carmen travels every year, and where she sometimes works as a kayak and trekking guide, exploring the fjords, glaciers and icy seas around the island. Using various cameras and experimenting with different types of film, Carmen captures beautiful and surreal landscapes full of colours we wouldn't expect to see in a place known better for being blanketed in white snow and ice.

You can find Carmen’s work on her page:

“64°north” is the third in a series of 9 exhibitions that will be organised in 2018 in 76m2, Pontypool by the*kickplate*project, with the support from the Arts Council of Wales, Torfaen Council's Arts Development and Pontypool Community Council. 

Welsh info coming soon!
