Travellers... at the Threshold of a New Era

Travellers... at the Threshold of a New Era

Exhibition at Gallery8

Ferbruary 24, 2017 - May 10, 2017

Opening: February 24, Friday 17:30


It is a spirit of radical wholism that seeks expression here, the weaving together of the philosophic, the political, the artistic, the spiritual and the revolutionary. The Earth and the Sky and the wheel have turned: the travellers stand… at the threshold of a New Era.

The exhibition draws its inspiration from the Roma flag, which it takes as a metaphor for the Creation: the green Earth as the physical, the blue Sky as the spiritual, and the wheel representing the journey through earth and sky, through the Creation. Drawing on the wisdom of Yogis and mystics, a clear message emerges about the journey: it is to be one of collective struggle to create a benevolent human society, and, a personal journey to attain spiritual elevation. Both of these themes are explored.
