Drawing on the the British Isles’ rich histories of magic and the occult, this exhibition looks at the ever-shifting figure of the witch within the practices of contemporary artists.
Understood as gatekeepers to altered consciousness, witches have been both feared and sought out for their dealings with the unknown. Historically persecuted as an outsider, the witch has been taken on by artists as a challenging force to prevailing norms and as a symbol of dissidence. Through symbols, crafts, and covens, the rituals of witches continue to suggest ways in which we can connect with the earth and with each other.
Exhibiting Artists: Verity Birt, Anna Bunting Branch, Nadine Byrne, Mary Beth Edelson, Fiona Finnegan, Blue Firth, Fourthland, Georgia Horgan. Ben Jeans Houghton, Serena Korda, Candice Lin, Katarzyna Majak, Lucy Stein, Monica SjÖÖ, Ayesha Tan Jones and Cathy Ward.
Waking the Witch is a UK Touring Exhibition curated by Legion Projects and supported by Arts Council England and Arts Council Wales.
