THE MEDUSA PROJECT
The Medusa project is a new exploration that investigates ways of re-presenting the Medusa myth in a contemporary art context.
The focus is on reweaving cultural memory of the myth in relation to issues concerning feminism, reclaiming of lost selves and the Anthropocene.
Archetypes have power on the collective psyche of the human race. By re weaving its cultural context, can we affect a change in mass consciousness? Can art, due its nature as presenting ideas beyond verbal or written language, have a substantial impact and modification on consciousness using long standing archetypes?
