Mythical Rivers is a duo exhibition featuring Juls Gabs (b.1989, Spain) and Yarli Allison (b.1988, Canada / Hong Kong) in Matsudo, Japan where their studio is based temporarily. The show is installed site-specifically in a hundred years old Japanese house, where audience encounters contemporary events connecting ancient folklores from around the world, yet familiarly resonate with the architecture’s past.

Juls Gabs’s works extend from the failure on the restoration work ‘Ecce Homo’ in Borja, Spain, suggested that her home country may have a lack of respect in preserving historical art. Drawing interest from recent failure restoration works also called Ecce Homo in Spain those gain success in tourism, she comments on its social irony, cultural neglect, and its internet phenomenon, by producing a series of her own ‘Ecce Homos’ based on the Catholic stories and rituals.

Yarli Allison’s video work imagining alternative ideas counter to self-consumption and de-growth, generating new fictional events collaborating with past memories in historical sites. Storylines of artist’s past, myths and current culture are intertwined in a form of fake news, unfolds and completes her narrative by experimenting with processes of content production through conscious segmenting of visual and time-based ingredients in the video screen.
