“Walking backwards”

Two funded exhibition opportunities at SNEHTA - June & October 2021

Walking Backwards - was inspired by the Greek figure of the soothsayer Tiresias, appearing in Dante’s Divine Comedy. Soothsayers are fortune tellers, or people who claim to be able to predict the future. In Canto XX, Dante and Vergil encounter these souls, forced to walk with their heads for ever facing backwards. The calls aim is to bring artists attention to past ideas and juxtapose those with our present condition.
