DESCRIPTION

Sanctified: Spirituality in Contemporary Art draws from the transcendence of exploration in the shamanistic, transcendent and divine nature of ancient relationships between anima and art. Challenging the space of the art gallery or white cube, the objects and artists create a context for spiritual passage and sanctification. Using the space as a healing ground, this group show proposes two different approaches to creating secular images of the sacred: The first group is composed of artists who make work that is derived from ritualistic action in the studio; the second is a depictive account of aura both serious and cynical.
