December 28th conference Art as Spiritual Practice, Art as Activism organized by Creatrix Magazine. Part of NOUMENA: deLIGHT magic & shamanism series with an art show “Altars, Portals &Grottos”.
Approach the nexus of energy and magic which lies at the heart of art and the spiritual tuning your senses to the music and light, auric visions possible only along a frequency of truly mystical perception, uniting ART and MAGIC.
The idea behind this show is to fulfill the human need for spiritual experiences bringing light and hope during the darkest time of the year, and therefore to transgress the darkness, to connect with the community through the experience of oneness, to raise beyond the divisions of faith, and to celebrate the transition into the new year.
We all come from somewhere, we all come from everywhere.
Our bodies are live blenders of heritage, history, family, rituals and beliefs.
Today I am participating in the performance with Shaun Caton – a performance artist who mostly works with painting and also creates performance-based, visual moving environments using light, shadows and painted cut-out characters that create scenes. Mixing painting and performance I am happy to get to know him and his work better. Looking at his website, he has a highly developed style, which I love.
This show brings together spiritually nomadic sex-positive radicals working in the mediums of fabric, installation, herbalism, healing, new media, glitch, sound and ritual performance.
