Society has imposed multiple meanings upon crossroads, those otherwise benign and simple intersections that are found throughout the world. These places of meeting and parting of ways, resolution and decision, have garnered throughout time a vast history, one that enters the spiritual and mystical realms.
This exhibition features the work of Tasmania-based artists invited to explore the mysteries and powers embodied in the traditions of the crossroads. Using the medium of their choice, the works traverse gothic sensibilities from superstition and folklore to ancient ritual and horror.
At the point where roads intersect, will you be haunted by ghosts, demons and witches, or will you find a place of wisdom and protection?
