Curated by Bolivian-British artist Lucia Sellars -
The Mythos Collective Exhibition will be shown this coming week between Wednesday 27th of April till Saturday 30th of April at the new art gallery south of the River Avon in Bristol – D-Unit Studios. The exhibition has been curated by Bolivian-British artist Lucia Sellars, who has incorporated a diverse group of artists representing the UK, Chile, Mexico and Bolivia, with a mixture of paintings and sculpture art exploring mythology and mythopoesis. Below the statement of the Mythos Collective Exhibition:
“life always seems like a plant
that lives on its rhizome.
It’s true life is invisible,
hidden in the rhizome”
- Carl Jung
What we see of any being, is just the top of the iceberg. Who are they, is even hidden to themselves, in their unconsciousness. As humans we live life in immediate reaction to our environment, whilst our inner mechanics which make externalised choices are a black box. Nobody knows what is going on within the black box. Only the owner of the black box can have a hint of what is happening within.
Myths are all the stories ever told and yet to be told. Partly real, partly supernatural, they tell the story of a journey. Is not just a case of entertainment but a search of understanding the self in relationship to the world and its forces. Imagination, creativity and dreams are key in this journey. The creation of myths, or mythopoesis, is relevant to each and every one of us.
In the search of who we are, and our purpose in this world The Mythos Collective explores through painting and ceramics, artefacts of these myths which carry many symbols used to interpret the ambiguous and blurry realities that we are forged into.
A language for each individual, that is. A system of communication built around and for each individual. An arch of understanding solely designed for the self.
Come and have a peek into the ‘other’ and yourself.
