Opening September 12, 6pm–9pm
Mythmaking has provided explanations for human existence and nature from ancient times through the present day. Supernatural and fictitious beings and unworldly scenarios have materialized throughout history in societies around the world.
From interpretations of social or natural phenomenon, exaggerations and misrepresentations of truths and invented stories and ideas, the exhibition In our cave we see shadows brings together a group of international artists who create stories or interpret life through their own personal folklore.
The exhibition consists of a visual collection of imaginary stories, fictitious places and/or characters that relate to mythological narratives, states of mind or ideas. Analyzing the connection between the subconscious with contemporary metaphors, the works selected draw upon mythology to explore fears and desires that while illogical and unrealistic, are based on reality and personal beliefs.
