MASTER OF THREE WORLDS references the storytelling format The Hero’s Journey, also known as the Master of Two Worlds, in which a protagonist is exposed to unexpected hardship and trial and returns to their initial setting having completed a transformative journey, now a master of both the domestic and initially unfamiliar worlds.
The ‘Three Worlds’ in this case relate to artists coming to terms with their initial physical location after development of relationships with new countries and cultures, wrestling with conceptualising work following the influence this may have, and the way in which practice expands and changes over time.
Artists included are Seth Birchall, Christopher Day, Eugene Choi, Mason Kimber, Jason Phu, Tom Polo and Marian Tubbs.
MASTER OF THREE WORLDS is on exhibition at the Coma Gallery, 107 Bayswater Road, Rushcutters Bay until the 10th September.
