Objects on horizon – here be dragons (exhibition)

The term “Hic sunt dracones” (here be dragons) was used by some ancient cartographers to denote the unknown territory that has not been maped or discovered. They labeled places that are on the horizon of our known world. Areas on the edge of the map during all times becomes a projection screen of our fantasies, discovery obsessions, fears from unknown beings and condensed mythological ideas.
