A selection of four of Adnan’s leporellos were exhibited as part of the Eurasia exhibition: Freedom of People, Freedom of Animals, Freedom of Plants, Freedom of Nature, Kassaed Bain Chajer (Poetry Between Trees), Les oliviers III and The World of Signs. Together they provide an insight into her reflections on humanity, language and nature.
