Independent curator Jake Adam Treacy presents 10 contemporary artists in Oracular Vernacular. Each artist translates their process-based practice like contemporary oracles, channelling and materialising unseen fields. Their art-making processes are akin to diviners, for the artist too is a mediator of invisible energy, as witnessed in their actions and seen in their works. The gallery space becomes a metaphysical laboratory where numinous objects speak of transformation and manifestation. Sacred mathematics, surrealistic automatons, magic spells, holy cadavers and pseudo sciences; alchemy and ceremony, imagined spirituality, psychedelic visions and weird dreams, unconscious communication and séances of memory immerse the visitor in a world between the physical and the psychical. The visitor becomes a quasi-shaman as they employ their smartphones like modern ritual tools, extracting information from the invisible internet ether.
