The ouroboros is an ancient symbol rich with meaning that is now responsible for bringing together 6 different artists to create work for this new exhibition. Below is their artist statement that further explains the concept of the ouroboros within their work:
(ôr-rŏb’-ôr-rŭs) is an exploration of the concept of self-reflexive creation within our own artistic practices. This idea will be presented through the combination of individual and collaborative pieces including paintings, installations, sculpture, fashion and furniture. All together, this body of work will emphasize the eternal return of self-reflexivity.
