Cambio de Forma


On July 6, 2023, a creative arts exhibition was held at the Gallo Rojo here in Seville. The exhibition featured artwork created by a group of Erasmus students from Ireland and the United Kingdom who have been working here in Seville for the past three months.


The exhibition was titled ‘Cambio De Forma’, which means ‘ change of form’ or ‘change of shape’ in Spanish. The theme of the exhibition was metamorphosis, which is the process of transformation from an immature form to an adult form in two or more different stages. This theme was chosen by the interns because they wanted to explore how the last three months had changed them and fostered their personal growth, and to convey a journey of self-transformation during their three-month Erasmus stay.

17 Artists

Seventeen artists exhibited their creations. There was a diverse range of creations on show. Many of the students work in creative fields such as ceramics and art studios, jewellery making, and photography. However, the exhibition was open to interns from all professional fields. There were paintings, drawings, photo prints, ceramics, sculptures, poetry, and performance pieces such as singing and beatboxing.

The opening night of the exhibition at Gallo Rojo was a great success. It was a night filled with art, music, drink, food, and laughter. Many friends and colleagues were in attendance to show their support for the students.

Well done and thank you to everyone involved. The students really came together as a team to utilise their skills while organising the exhibition. They set up an Instagram page to advertise the exhibition and showcase what kind of work would be on display. 

The Instagram page was run by Róisín Boyle, Subhadra Auman and Matthew Osborne. With the poster and graphics by Davina O’Shea, and reels created by Alyssa Fleming and Róisín Boyle. The exhibition was organised and co-ordinated by Ailbhe Flynn. Photography by Sarah Clerkin and videography by Alyssa Fleming.
