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. Conjuring Queen Crone, Sacred Whore, Devouring Mother, Gangsta Bitch and Virile Beast, these freaks of gypsy-pelvis-sorcery are keen on spiritual bricolage and plant medicine. The mysteries of female biology dominated human religious thought, art and ritual for 200,000 years of life on earth. We are a collective effort led by womxn decolonizing the 6,000 “civilizing” dominator-model years damned by white male patriarchy; rethinking Mother-complexes beyond “sexual-pathology,” and plumbing ancestral fertility cults which venerated organic life cycles in embodied rituals that continually recenter our humanity.

These gender-troubled mavericks unveil the feminist mysteries and reassert the value of the maternal comforts of creation, nurturing, holding and caring. They weave paradigm-shifting realities with sewing needle, word, sword and world-wide-web. Healing the traumatic split of the maternal/erotic instilled by patriarchy, THE SHRIEKS OF HAGALON (“Hagalon” references “Babylon” overrun by wild and shrieking old wise women) challenge a world that does not pay for forms of healing which do not align with constipated capitalistic drives.
