BREATHE. DREAM. FLY.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The three artists explore the realm of dreams, meditation, and superstitions in the group exhibition titled Breathe. Dream. Fly.
Bettina Forget's unique prints illustrate an ancient text about a voyage to the Moon. Carried by spirits a lonely hero ascends into the sky to discover strange lands. Jennifer Hamilton's large-scale mandala absorbs and hypnotizes the viewer with its rhythmic composition of details and spiritual symbolism. Annie Stephen's enigmatic photographs suggest a narrative but leave most of it unexplained. Her carefully selected props and figures create a quietly haunting atmosphere.
In the cold and quiet winter month of January, this exhibition invites visitors to take a rest, calm their thoughts, and let their minds fly.
