Monica de Miranda’s PANORAMA
Tyburn Gallery is pleased to present PANORAMA, Mónica de Miranda’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. Based in Lisbon, Portugal, de Miranda is an artist of Angolan descent whose photography and mixed media based work deals with themes of geography and identity, expressing meditative visions of personal history and exploring the poetics of belonging.
The exhibition takes its title from the Hotel Panorama in Luanda, but also refers to the ownership and power implied by the construction of views of landscapes. In de Miranda’s photographic work, we see visions of the past and present of Angola as witnessed through its architectural geography: hotels, swimming pools and cinemas, mid-century modernist buildings which once served as monuments to colonial leisure, have been abandoned, repurposed, and are being silently reclaimed by the lush natural landscape.
