The Lightbox Gallery and Museum is excited to announce the new Upper Gallery exhibition NightShaking with The Ingram Collection running from July 10th to September 19th, 2021. This outstanding exhibition is a creative collaboration using works from The Ingram Collection and contributions from contemporary artists Dr Chantal Powell and Dean Melbourne who work in the fascinating field of mythology, alchemy and depth psychology. 

The concept of the Night Sea Journey symbolises a journey of self-discovery that one has to undertake in order to gain a new sense of self brought about by an inner awakening. This motif appears in mythology throughout the world and across centuries, yet the story is always similar. The hero travels, often in the belly of a beast or in a vessel, such as a boat or an ark, across a dark, primordial sea, mimicking the unseen course of the sun after it sets in the west and then magically reappears in the east. Artists Powell and Melbourne have selected key works from The Ingram Collection that speak to this story.

Visitors are encouraged to pre-book specified timeslots in advance here to avoid having to wait if the galleries are full.
