Ancient Future Myths: Works by Chua Chon Hee and Ben Loong
Ancient Future Myths: Works by Chua Chon Hee and Ben Loong features 30 ceramic works and prints that highlight two artists’ distinctive reflections on some of the oldest systems of order that have informed our understanding of the world, and the powerful associations of meanings they carry. Across centuries and civilisations, mythologies and astronomy have long held power over man’s imagination. After all, many of today’s myths were once ancient truths that shaped societies and cultures. As some dissipated with the progress of time, others inherited new roles and values that continue to scaffold the cultures of today and tomorrow.
