Io e Melek (Melek and I)
20 March – 3 April 2022

Opening on Saturday 19 March at 18:30

Io e Melek is Lina Ehrentraut’s debut graphic novel, a love story set in a parallel dimension, in which repressed desires and conflicts of the ego are realised, amidst identity splits, queer relationships and close encounters with the self. The exhibition Io e Melek presents originals from the book – black-and-white sequences alternating with full-colour pictorial interludes – and other elements related to the production of the story.
