VITRINE is pleased to announce the first solo show of Bahraini artist Zayn Qahtani. 'Angels In Purgatory' will present a new body of work exploring themes of destruction, resurrection and rebirth through a personal retelling of myth and folklore.

Qahtani works across painting, drawing and sculpture to produce work that draws on her own heritage, ancient cultures and nature’s diverse ecosystems, to create visual stories which seem to exist in the twilight zone - too distorted to be real, too familiar to be a dream. 

The exhibition will be the first time VITRINE Fitzrovia's Basement Gallery has been used for an individual solo show.
