Modern Eden will be showcasing a group exhibition, “Myth” featuring works inspired by sacred narratives, legends, and folklore. From Greek mythology to religious icons, these images will aim to capture the art of storytelling and illustrate the meaning behind these texts. Some of the most well-known legends such as the golden touch of King Midas to some more obscure tales like the Japanese Akaname, a toilet licking demon aimed to teach children about sanitation will be addressed in this international group show.
