Scream of the Butterfly

City:

Eligibility:

This exhibition, inspired by a lyric in the Doors song: “When the Music’s over” will take place on the first weekend of June 2022 at The Davies Gilder Gallery at New House in Guildford.

Scream of the Butterfly will showcase work from a group of artists who use their mediums to sublimate personal experience, or reflect that of others, exploring complex psychological states.

The exhibtion is being held by artist Lauren Thompson and sponsored by Kane FM, a local radio station working to transform the lives of young people struggling with learning differences and wellbeing challenges.

We are open to submissions from artists working in any medium who wish to have their work included in a show that will also raise awareness for mental health. The only requirement is that you can get your work to the location ready to exhibit and back again. 

Show Concept:

To become a butterfly, a caterpillar first digests itself. Amidst the pandemic individuals have retreated into their own cocoons, trapped within the constraints of their minds. This has been, for many, a time for introspection and transformation. Although the process can be painful, once the caterpillar has digested itself, it metamorphosizes, breaking out of the darkness and through to the other side as a butterfly: lighter, free and high flying. 

Symbolically, across cultures the butterfly has become “a symbol for rebirth and resurrection, for the triumph of the spirit and the soul over the physical prison.”

Looking forward to seeing all of your submissions!
