Into the Woods
The first of three themes presents classic stories and contemporary retellings set in the woods and faraway castles. The woods of the fairy tale are a place of possibilities and danger. Step across the threshold into the unknown and consider the magical realm in which these tales reside.
Featuring works of contemporary art, design and film, ‘Into the woods’ considers themes of magic, enchantment, thresholds and transformation, while also articulating the concepts of power imbalance and injustice, gender and otherness, ageing, and resilience in the face of adversity.
