Globelore (global folklore) is an exhibition of new work that retells fairy tales, myths and folklore through time and space. Blurring the line between fact and fiction, Globelore combines historic regional research with fictional interpretations of metamodern storytelling. Breaking down the psychological necessity of storytelling reveals the love/hate relationship people have with popular culture.

Not just for children, tales of magic and spiritualism become insights into human nature. Using the processes of intaglio, relief and painting, Globelore invites you to relive your youth and critically consider the fairytale you currently inhabit, within the larger context of stories from all over the globe.
