Ethiopia - The Land of the Sacred Ibis

Ethiopia Land of the Sacred Ibis

In 2009 Gadsden undertook a long planned journey to Ethiopia in July 2009, to walk with the indigenous tribal people of the Southern Omo Valley.
Gadsden spent her childhood surrounded by desert - she lived in the Middle East until she was 20 - and it is from a similar landscape, the Omo Valley, that this work emerges, a place where she seems to gain a greater sense of self, where memory and the present come together in what becomes for her a charged artistic vision.
