One night only-group show, curated by Rasmus Hungnes and Josefine Lyche on March 1rst, 2016. Participating artists were "selected according to the twelve signs of the Zodiac by using divination techniques and different modes of Gnosis", on the occasion of the release of the contemporary art magazine KUNSTforum's latest issue 01/16 on 'Art and Spirituality'. Integrated performance and noise concert by Sindre Foss Schancke and Martin Palmer.
I participated with two context-specific works:
One candelabra and 'ouroboric' wax candle. The candle was recycled out of recovered wax, moulded in twelve layers of different shades of grey. Each layer has been carved with a specially designed sigil, which has been melted into oblivion onto the next layer. Its function is to protect KUNSTforum, its readers, and the Lynx Pavillion against destructive energies, and to lead all into a new, creative aeon.
One piece of body art on my left arm, consisting of carefully selected symbols chosen for the occasion, imprinted onto my skin during a semi-secret henna-ritual. The piece fades away during the period of two weeks.
