As a collective we were asked to think of a title that would reflect all the changes we were going through. Pandora Arts Collective Society had lots of administrative changes in 2016. Our new facilitator is Geri; with her came more collaborative art works especially mandalas, and now for the first time, in our decade long history, we will be at the Moss Street Paint in!

 

Everyone was asked to submit a title which we all voted on. We chose Metamorphosis.

 

Annuska came up with that title. Here are her reasons:

 

“Metamorphosis is a short story written by F. Kafka about how he feels stigmatized by his family as he is an artist. He feels completely rejected from society, and he feels he is constantly marginalized and made to feel like he is like a sub-human being. I believe this kind of discrimination against artists still exists in the Western world…”

 

Many of the members of Pandora have a different take – a caterpillar becoming a butterfly, a tadpole turns into a frog, dinosaur evolves into a chicken, and the raven obtains supernatural powers. Here in our exhibit there are gods, goddesses, mythological creatures, super heroes, along with flowers, bridges and more. Life is always in flux and we record the small and large changes through art.
