Epidemics, wars, natural disasters, political and economic crises –
parallel, ordinary life, birth, death, love, hatred, everyday life, learning, work, curiosity,
boredom, anxiety, peace, joy, sadness, hope, fear ... fate ... destiny. Greek myths have extraordinary power and are cruelly topical.
What becomes important when Goddesses, Nymphs, sometimes Gods, characters from myths endowed with strength in the struggle with fate and destiny stand up to fight for their lives, for their rights, for their development and the power of imagination and numerous talents received as a gift.
What do the myths interpreted by the contemporary young generation of artists hide? Are they seduced by the power of a mythical past? It varies, because the Tribe has its own independence. Sometimes compatible, more often rebellious, not always willing to work from autumn to summer.
… and yet I believe that art is the area where youth finds their individual creative paths, as well as a wise, tribal community.
What traces lead us to the recipients? From the singing Helen to the
tragic Medea, through the motanka of Artemis, to the raped Medusa, Leda and the
Gorgon, the waiting Penelope, the running Hermes, the spirit of Ahriman, to the
mythical apple of discord, the crushed pomegranate seed to the war memory of
the echo. Where are the Goddesses and Gods – all the deities and their modern
incarnations running along the streets of Wilda, hidden in the thickets of Lake
Rusałki, in the computer embroidery workshop, finally revealed in secret
corners illuminated in mahogany paneling, in marble walls – caused by the light
of projectors, monitored in a mythical labyrinth Castle Culture Centre.
