ALTARS PORTALS AND GROTTOS
“Altars, Portals and Grottos” is a group show presenting works from multidisciplinary female artists who work in the medium of installation, sculpture, light, performance, and video. Located in The Park Church Co-op sanctuary, the artworks will illuminate the main space of the temple during the Christmas period, relating to the advent tradition in Christianity and ancient pagan beliefs where the celebration of advent comes from. 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.
On view by appointment, December 21-30, 2019

NOUMENA: deLIGHT artists:
expresses colorful soundscapes and textures by using various musical gears and her voice experimentally. In the past, she often created DTM and her first EP “Presage” was released from Emerald Records, a music label out of Germany in 2016.
Since the 90s of XXc philosophers and art historians were looking for a term to describe the era after postmodernism, and while the term “anthropocene” became one of them, in terms of cultural production we are experiencing a new type of romanticism: return to feminine, mysticism, magic, nature and spirituality. The occult and magical are re-appearing throughout different art mediums possibly as an answer to our increasingly materialistic world.
In the spirit of this paradigm shift NOUMENA magic & shamanism art series encompasses works focused on ritual, ancient pagan cults, shamanic traditions, witchcraft, occult, esoteric gnosis, folk magic, as well as psychedelic experiences, astrology, magical intents, narratives derived from mythology & religions, and magical and symbolic languages.
Plato described the role of an artist as the one who translates the meanings of the cosmic consciousness for the rest of us. In a similar manner the Shamanese, Xwaay or Shaman, are the go-between medium, revealing the will of the divine and connecting the tribe with its vital force. Today’s artists can be perceived as traditional shamans possessing the power of accelerating humanity’s evolution in consciousness.
In pre-Kantian philosophy “Platonic Ideas and Forms” are described as NOUMENA, and phenomena are things displaying themselves to the senses. In this event NOUMENA: deLIGHT we invite you to explore the IDEAL somehow unknowable WORLD with a group of musicians, artists, poets and performance artists whose work carries on spiritual traditions.
