I was absolutely thrilled to receive a copy of the Imago Mundi catalogue: Myth/Reality, Contemporary Artists from Scotland. It contained such a wonderfully wide variety of different works in a broad spectrum of different styles and mediums.
The project was “A visionary creative workshop in which artists explore, experiment and examine with sincerity and pride the Scotland of today and its extraordinary territory, not only from a naturalistic and geographical point of view but also as a political and social space. In an overall picture of lively interactions and contrapositions – myth and reality; tradition and innovation; self-sufficiency and community – Imago Mundi brings together in this collection the works of 140 Scottish artists: an array of aesthetics, styles, narrations, characters to tell the story of a land and a people, a solid cultural identity with ancient and modern inspirations.”
Myth/Reality. Contemporary Artists from Scotland is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10×12 cm format.
