Aspects of The Contemporary and The Mythic

Opening Reception: February 20 | 5–7pm (Artist Talks + Screenings + Performances @ 5:30pm)

Participating Artists: David Boo, Gígja Jónsdóttir, Lucien Jeanprêtre, Jiaming Song, Huiling Chen, and Yuanyuan Zhu.

This show features thematically-related mystery stories, legends, and anecdotes and function to consider aspects of time, space, and myth through theatrical and cinematic forms.

Two brothers, the gods of sleep and death, are wandering in modern society.
A man in forest is taking off one of his masks.
The keyboard warrior is enjoying his breakfast.
A brain is seeking its home in another body.
A man is building a secret space.
An Icelandic woman is telling you her story…

These films are about contemporary myth, a space of unexpected imaginations, and a metonymic world of realism, moving from interior to exterior. The images speak, the sounds comment, and the space becomes mysterious.
