The Archetypes exhibition explores five great themes found in almost every culture and society: revelation, sacrifice, belief, transcendence and destiny. Liviu Mocan expresses them using 21st-century technology, whilst drawing inspiration from the 16th-century Reformation – which itself was a retrieval of 1st-century ideas. Each sculpture can be approached in three ways: through the artist’s title, through the archetype it interprets, or by way of the five solas of the Reformation. Mocan’s interpretation draws on his own personal faith, which grew and was refined under the communist regime in Romania. The exhibition thus invites visitors into a multi-faceted conversation between history, faith, art and philosophy. It is open every day from 9am to 6pm between July 23rd and January 6th 2019.
