Discovering your very own Venus

In Roman mythology, Venus is the goddess of love, desire, beauty, prosperity, fertility, and victory. Even as a goddess, Venus experienced disappointments felt by humans, such as jealousy, loss, and sadness. Over the centuries, Venus has been depicted in the forms of sculptures and paintings such as ‘The Birth of Venus,’ by Sandro Botticelli, or ‘Venus de Milo’ sculpture, which has later become a trademark for sewing equipment. 

Venus in the Shell is presented in four chapters: Forbidden Flower, Moonlight Dive, Mandragora in the Vase, and The Wanderer. Visiting the exhibition, you will delve into the secretive corners of humanity’s fragility, anger, disappointment, love, joy, jealousy, brightness, and darkness. The artist’s wish is that you embrace the reality of life, not just those depicted by the gods. Like the goddess Venus, we are all worthy in our lightness, darkness, and what others might wrongly view as ‘imperfection.’
