EARTHSHRINE - Sensing Sacred Soils

No items found.

EARTHSHRINE is the first bigger soloshow by Venus Jasper. The exhibition was showed in their birth town Eindhoven (NL) at MU Hybrid Arthouse.

EARTHSHRINE can best be seen as a speculative shrine for soil, which presented a lot of artworks from the years leading up to it. EARTHSHRINE featured EDEN SPACECRAFT (2022), Trans Neolithic Future – series of drawings (2019 - 2021), the video installations EARTHHURT (2021) and DIRTY (2022). There was also a reading table, a sketchbook, several composting altars and a unique scents and soundscape bound together in several hand-made hemp-fiber and willow 6 x 10 meter walls.

The show also featured many smaller rock-like sculptures and presented a folkloric-punk ritual live programming: from educational workshops and academic talks to live rituals and entire music nights with ceremonial-rave music, featuring several international artists; Victoria McKenzie, Georgia Kareola, YaYa Bones (Bones Tan Jones), sWitches and Ibellisse Guardia Ferragutti.

The entire exhibition, and the extensive live program was conceived by theartist. Many additional educational activities, walks and workshops have alsobeen organized by the MU Education team in the context of EARTHSHRINE.
