Our world is defined by complex and evolved systems of belief, but do we now know too much? Questions can be answered immediately, few mysteries remain in the information age, so how can we explain the endurance of mythological thinking? Myth provides a tool for dealing with the unknown. It provides a moral and psychological lesson to steer others in the right direction.
Modern Myth takes us on a journey through imagined worlds, traversing constructed landscapes while at times challenging traditional narrative. Eleven contemporary artists reference personal iconography and draw on ideas of identity and place in response to the concept of Modern Myth.
