Art Below and Re:Centre invite you to meet the artists behind 'Choose your Hero'
at Re:Centre, Rainville Road, Thames Wharf, London W6 9HA, Friday 12th October 2018, 6:30 - 8:30 pm
At Re:Centre, artists are given the chance to step out of their traditional modes of working, and enter a reflective and inspiring space to reconnect to themselves, to others and to their creative practice.
Re:Centre's first exhibition is inspired by Joseph Campbell, a great mythologist and storyteller, and in particular his work: The Hero's Journey.  In this masterfully crafted book, 
Campbell recounts his own quest and conveys the excitement of his lifelong exploration of our mythic traditions – what he called “the one great story of mankind.”
This Friday we invite you to join us for a special evening together, as our 12 artists each share a piece of their journey and talk about their work, their inspiration and their interpretation of who and what makes a hero.
Limited spaces are available, so please RSVP as soon as possible by email:
Timothy Gatenby, Sabrina Rowan Hamilton, Jo Holland, Harriet Hoult, Emma Johansen, Ru Knox,
Stephanie Mill, Fleur van der Minne, Rita de Sa, Simon Stephenson, James Vaulkhard 
Whether you call someone a hero or a monster is all relative to where the focus of your consciousness may be.’
- Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth.

'Taking the child out of stress and into a relaxed state creates the optimum condition and possibility for positive change.' Francesca Arpino. 

Joseph Campbell, arguably the greatest mythologist of the twentieth century, was certainly one of our greatest storytellers. This masterfully crafted book interweaves conversations between Campbell and some of the people he inspired, including poet Robert Bly, anthropologist Angeles Arrien, filmmaker David Kennard, Doors drummer John Densmore, psychiatric pioneer Stanislov Grof, Nobel laureate Roger Guillemen, and others. Campbell reflects on subjects ranging from the origins and functions of myth, the role of the artist, and the need for ritual to the ordeals of love and romance. With poetry and humor, Campbell recounts his own quest and conveys the excitement of his lifelong exploration of our mythic traditions, what he called “the one great story of mankind.”
