Seven artists wander through the dark side of their imagination.
The last few years artists Sarina Missot and Yoshiyuki Koinuma have been setting up a dialogue on lost cultures and new civilisations, on myths and monsters and on heaven and hell. The painting ‘The Nightmare’ by Johann Heinrich Füssli became the starting point of a search for artists that were not scared to deal with a fine bit of symbolism, romanticism, drama and monumental gestures, combined with a healthy dose of (black) humor.
