Musa paradisiaca

“Come back Sir, you’re not from that world. Please, come back Sir, you’re from this world.”
22 November 2014 – 14 February 2015

Dan Gunn is pleased to announce the opening of the first solo exhibition at the gallery by Musa paradisiaca.

There was a man who wanted every woman he saw. One day, a sorceress came, leading the man to an insane desire. She advised him not to pursue his will — it would be too dangerous to be with her.
But he did not listen.

This show is based on a story we have heard about a sorceress and a man. The story describes an impossible desire and a vanishing soul. Trapped between two worlds, we hear a final calling:

“Come back Sir, you’re not from that world / Please, come back Sir, you’re from this world”.
