The group exhibition showcases artworks by eight artists which examine the aesthetics of our time and revisit myths and perhaps create a renewed story, looking at flora and fauna as divinity again.
Conceptualised by Tunty Chauhan, the exhibition invites artists to revisit myths and weave a narrative around folk art traditions that centered around animals – showing them as divine and as intrinsic to our domestic life.
Speaking on the exhibition, Tunty Chauhan says, “Myths often have cosmogonic overtones. They are narratives of a sacred nature, often connected with some ritual within any given culture. Secular and sacred myths co-exist and reflect a social order or values. We have invited the artists to critically examine in myth the distinct character of particular cultures, to perceive universal patterns. While some regard myth as contemporary and “alive”, others think of it as ancient or dormant.”
