A Visual Journey Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe
“Those who dream by day”, opening doors on the 15th of March at Strychnin Gallery, celebrates the imagination and oeuvres of the great Edgar Allan Poe.
The mysterious man, whose life was short and filled with tragedy, left behind one of the most admired, questioned and influential literary body of works.
Strychnin Gallery wants to re-establish this admiration for Poe and thus was “Those Who Dream by Day” born. Overseas, the revival of Poe, with the latest John Cusack movie, The Raven, and Kevin Bacon’s thriller TV-series, The Following has taken strong-hold.
