“Freedom to Live” proposes a parallel journey by drawing from current cultural oracles of video games, genetic engineering, evolutionary anomalies, and sci-fi to present an array of monsters and hybrids. These depictions raise questions about the possibility of a contemporary hero as interpreted by the art world. “Freedom to Live” will combine the 8-bit pixilated terrain of early video games and mythologist Joseph Campbell’s illustration of the hero’s journey into a “game board” on the gallery walls. While Meuler and Karwacki aim to recontextualize this journey through collaborative works, the viewer is also encouraged to develop his or her own hero’s path.
We hope to see you there, adventure awaits you!
