New Exhibit, Terminus, at Heide Museum of Modern Art, Takes Campbell’s Hero’s Journey into New Artistic Spaces

The title of the current exhibition showing at Heide Museum of Modern Art is an apt one as Terminus alludes to a finishing point or the attaining of a final goal. This notion of a quest, popularized by researcher of comparative mythologies Joseph Campbell and his idea of the hero’s journey, is individual in practice but universal in nature. For Campbell, it was here that the artist plays a vital role by capturing the potency of the human experience through the act of creating. The centerpiece of the show is five new virtual reality artworks experienced through Oculus Rift headsets which take the wearer on a fantastical VR journey. To read more about Terminus, click here.
