According to the well-known myth, Minos, the king of Crete, had a labyrinth built, where Minotaur, the human-bodied, bull-headed monster lived. The creature was slain by the brave Theseus, with the help of Ariadne, the daughter of the Cretan king. Made specifically for the space of the gallery, this interactive installation recreates the mythic structure and makes a sensuous experience of the impenetrable maze so as to bring its story closer to the audience.
Visitors and those who take part at the related workshops can manipulate certain parts of the massive installation, which helps them to gain a deeper understanding of the questions, concepts, and symbols that appear in the story.
The exhibition was organized in cooperation with Budapest Spring Festival and Budapest Art Week.
