Our contribution to the DA! Art Award 2022

The power of myth

The auspicious cat from East Asia stands for all the talismans to which we time and again unthinkingly entrust our fate. The paw raised friendly to the greeting, she beckons us. But what if we accept her invitation? And what became of the hermit crab whose shell house she inhabits? Whose egg did she smuggle herself into? Lucky Hermit is a cipher for the seductions of myth and superstition that take hold of our thinking like a parasite.
