On occasion of the 15th Istanbul Biennial Almanza Pereda exhibits his series called Horror Vacui, a project in motion since 2010. The installation, which deals with the tension between private and public spaces through the relationship of humans and nature, invites us to witness how walls take possession of anonymous paintings of nature.
