About the exhibition:
From the moment we enter the exhibition space of Untold Stories I Once Wished Lost, we are swept up by the fierce and violent acts that play out in the myth-based imaginary worlds of the prints that range across the wall.

Abstract and realistic elements coexist in worlds that span different times and places. Throughout, the highly-detailed and action-oriented panoply is alive with innumerable plants and animals that are enveloped in a grand interconnected pattern. These prints are then “tiled” together, expanding around us and filling the horizons of our imaginations.

Williams hurls herself against Greek myth after myth, proposing a revision to the particularly male narrative lineage. Here female heroines triumph by allying themselves with animals and nature.
By choosing to transform themselves into other human, plant or animal forms, they evade their predetermined fates and embrace life in new ways.
