Irena Hanenbergh's exhibition, Presence between Alborz and Hekla is a print based installation which explores the supernatural, the fairytale and genres of fantasy/myth aesthetics. Incorporating imagery reminiscant of mythological archetypes, witchcraft, Egyptian iconography, secret Druid ceremonies and Nordic fairytales, the work draws on darker forces and disturbing aspects of what are generally perceived as harmless themes in traditional representations of fantasy subject matter and the supernatural fairytale.
This project was supported by a Pat Corrigan Artist's Grant, managed by Nava with financial assistance from the Australia Council.
