A GROUP EXHIBITION EXPLORING FOLKLORE, MYTHS AND FAIRYTALES
CO-CURATED BY FLORA FAIRBAIRN & KATIE HELLER
Produced by Rosannagh Scarlet Esson
Online until 31 August 2022
  • Flora Fairbairn & Co. are thrilled to partner with curator and art advisor Katie Heller on Once Upon a Time..., a presentation exploring folklore, myths and fairytales. This group exhibition brings together a wide selection of artists at various stages of their careers to explore the traditions, beliefs, customs, and stories that have shaped our collective cultural histories, and the roles they play today. Folklore, myths and fairytales examine the light and the dark in human nature. They provide a vessel for our own inventions and our interconnected journeys. As cultural products of the legacy of storytelling, we identify with these narratives and continue to add and refine, elaborating and translating for new audiences. They engage us with lessons in morality and coach us in perseverance. Stories provide comfort, excitement and humour, as well as a thread that connects each of us through the history of the spoken word.
