Coastal Myths

Coastal Myths

By Studio Sahil- 18th September - 25th September 2022

The exhibition Coastal Myths by Studio Sahil curated by/ co-organised by Open Space explores the day to day objects consisting predominantly of glass that one encounters through stories, myths and connections relating to the island. The word “sahil” from Studio Sahil is directly translated to coast or shore, which is a key reference to the exhibition. Islands have always held a significant place in popular imagination and mythology, with everything from The Odyssey, Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Treasure Island to Elif Safak’s most recent fiction The Island of Missing Trees, all contributing to the idea that these sea-bound lands have more to their stories. By experimenting with materiality, tactility and texture, the studio creates beautiful timeless objects that explore different narratives around belonging, place and cultural heritage.
