The theme:  Antigone Revisited

The tragedy of Antigone written by Sophocles in 441 BC has attracted writers and dramatists throughout the ages from Jean Cocteau in 1922 to this excerpt from Anne Carson’s 2000 anthology of essays and poetry. Just as Cocteau turned to the drama of ancient Greece for inspiration after the upheaval of World War I, this exhibition turns to the contemporary poet Anne Carson and her interpretation of the Greek heroine of Antigone for guidance in our present era of societal crisis. And just as the Cubists and Surrealists made revolutionary changes in the field of visual art around the same time as Cocteau’s Antigone, the artists in this exhibition create works with the same effect while mining myths, folk tales and pagan practices from the past or building their own worlds as they process the intense drama played out on the world stage today – whether it be the war on our environment, Ukraine’s borders or the Israel-Gaza conflict, the struggle to protect our individual identity or the constant battle to stop the infringement of citizens’ rights in our world’s democracies. Just as the epitaph to this exhibition ends in a hope for personal freedom, the works of these artists present a united front in these times of collapsing liberties and constitute a collective strength or light akin to the Greek heroine
