Caminos del Exilio/ Journeys of Exile

A series of abstract landscapes imagining journeys of exile from Spain to England undertaken by a groups of Spanish exiles in 1937 and 1939. Sonia Boué imagines and attempts to embody the psyche in transit and the marks of journeying. Period suitcases are a major inspiration, and the motif of the window emerges. These embodiments also invoke Boué's journeys between England and Spain between 1962 and 1975, and her childhood spent on the beaches of Barcelona.
