Past and present, these are two aspects of life which we may handle cautiously or incautiously. Should we view the past through the medium of extant literary or artistic evidence, or should we view the past through the cultural memories that live on in our daily habits? Can the wisdom and achievements of the past benefit or guide us in the present? The artists introduced in this exhibition may already be ahead of us in addressing these questions.
