DESCRIPTION

HANMI GALLERY is pleased to announce its 13th interim exhibition, ‘Three Gates.’ Mythical gateways into other worlds have appeared throughout human history, from the culture of the ancient Egyptians through to contemporary comics and science fiction movies. Via these portals, humans can enter the realms of the dead, of deities and of grotesque or magical beings; they can also attain profound mystical experiences and altered states of consciousness. Inspired by famous gates in mythology, the exhibition ‘Three Gates’ explores the physical and psychological ‘spaces’, which we inhabit and explore in contemporary society.
