Ritual Space: an exploration of internal worlds

“I wanted to bring something together that celebrated themes of the primal, magical, and dark on the day that marked three years of Twisted Shadows, because three is a number of symbolic significance ” says Lady Stab, ritual creator of Twisted Shadows who is curating the art show. “And what better way to celebrate than inviting emerging local artists to join in on the fun?” 

The exhibition opening from 6pm on All Hallows’ Eve will showcase a public ritual performance by Twisted Shadows. Starting at 8pm, the ritual will utilise body piercing and suspension paired with a soundscape and projections. Throughout the evening there will be other video installations and interactive art pieces. This ritual is not for the faint hearted - but if you're squeamish about seeing blood on the night, the other artworks will be on display for four days after the ritual as well. 

This exhibition celebrates the third year manifestation anniversary of Twisted Shadows, a ritual art performance outfit which explores themes of Death, Rebirth and Blood. Eight other talented local artists have joined forces with Twisted Shadows to to make the Ritual Space exhibition a reality. They include Izzy Joy, Eddie Hayden, Lottie Loves Lemons, Morrison Arts, GG Gore, Rebecca Hawkes, Holly Hemlock, and Tomas Richards. The artists have a mixture of fine-arts training and self-taught backgrounds, and have come together through their shared interest in Gothic and occult artwork.The artworks on display will range from oil paintings to video installations and metalwork.

The artworks will be available to view in the gallery from 9am-7pm from the 1st until the 4th of November.

We invite you to attend this Halloween for an exhibition like no other. We promise it will be challenging, exciting, and memorable.
