The Dying Pythia, an exhibition at 97 Mount St, London, W1K 2TD

An exhibition re-awakening the Delphic Oracle through the visions of her priestesses. Ancient art, Greek tragedies, Western and Eastern visual traditions take part in an astonishing yet refined mix of voices. Subtle yet swift, this exhibition invites us to journey through metamorphoses from Antiquity to the Present day.

Intensely gestural, richly monochrome, merging with oxidating metals, this new series of works by the London-based Chilean artist, Pato Bosich, takes us on a journey through time. An artistic time travel.

Years of on-going work with the collections at the British Museum both in situ and in the studio come together with “the dying Pythia” series. All works are for sale.

A collection of Drawings by Pato Bosich

London-based Chilean artist, Pato Bosich, presents his most recent body of mixed media work: Antiquity, to co-incide with the new exhibition at the British Museum, “I am Ashurbanipal: king of the world, king of Assyria”.

Developed over a period of over five years, the results are a richly, dense, playful and exciting series of drawings inspired by the British Museum's collections of Assyrian, Mesoamerican, Greek, Mesopotamian and other antiquities.

Bosich's "Antiquity" is rooted in the search of the fragmentary. The works explore how antiquity discloses the multiple primordial worlds, and the artist's intention is to piece together the past, present and future into a coherent whole. The artist's use of the unconventional combination of ink and wine has uncanny parallels with a poem by the 13th century mystic, Abraham Abulafia, often cited by the artist, about perceiving our soul as blood and our spirit as ink, and that understanding the battle that rages between them is our key to self-knowledge.

Dr Irving Finkel, Curator at the British Museum’s Assyrian department, commented at the recent Artist Talk at the University of London on 23 October, “Pato Bosich is an extraordinary artist. He observes the artefacts directly and applies his own interpretation in a transformational way. A must-see.”
