Pandora's Box


Click here to view E-Catalogue

The artworks curated for 'Pandora's Box' are inspired by the ancient greek myth and metaphor used in our modern language, “Pandora’s box”. The proverbial phrase refers to the havoc that immeditately arose after Zeus handed Pandora a beautiful box with a big lock saying, “This is my gift to you. Don’t ever open it.” As Zeus anticipated, Pandora’s curiosity led her to open the forbidden box, ending the golden age. It is said that as soon as Pandora opened this box, she unleashed human evils and endless troubles in the world such as greed, envy, hunger, poverty, violence, pain and war. 

The collection of diverse artworks strings and establishes the analogous nature of angst, stress, distress and the fragile nature and times we live in. The contemporary artworks featured in 'Pandora's Box' symbolize and reflect socio-political adversities that are prevalent in our world today. We are increasingly becoming more apathetic as individuals and as a society. We choose to continually trade comforts of today by passing the burden to the next generation. This constant misuse of take has released evils into the world, which we cannot take back. “Pandora’s Box” showcases artists from 15 countries across the globe to highlight the universal need for power that has plagued our earthly paradise.
