a clearingOle Meergans & Ellie Pratt This exhibition brings together the works of London-based painter Ellie Pratt and Berlin-based sculptor Ole Meergans.

Scene I Lina Hermsdorf„At the Rostock Institute of Zoology, ticks were kept alive in captivity without eating for eighteen years.

I have a sinus infection, if I sound a little nasal and you can’t understand what I’m saying please excuse me.
