In the 1980s, everywhere you turned there were warnings about a widespread evil conspiracy to indoctrinate the vulnerable through the media they consumed. This percolating cultural hysteria, now known as the “Satanic Panic,” was both illuminated and propagated through almost every pop culture pathway in the 1980s, from heavy metal music to Dungeons & Dragons role playing games, Christian comics, direct-to-VHS scare films, pulp paperbacks, Saturday morning cartoons and TV talk shows —and created its own fascinating cultural legacy of Satan-battling VHS tapes, music and literature. From con artists to pranksters and moralists to martyrs, Satanic Panic: Pop-Cultural Paranoia in the 1980s aims to capture the untold story of the how the Satanic Panic was fought on the pop culture frontlines and the serious consequences it had for many involved.

This is a Reunion of all those who hunt this universe for the sacred


This exhibition is for those who, reeling forth on cosmic wheels, propelled from the heart by lashes of wind and fire, seek to draw out, with claws, with fingers like feathers, touching grace, spinning the leather wheel of the infinite road trip into the blinding ring, glimpses of fur darting past the edges of civilization, seen from the corners of silver screen eyes, sew glistening seeds before the scathing sunsets of dawns dripping with dew, a foundation of crystal roots. This is for the warriors of light who hold trembling temptation at bay, who are driven, haunted by the need to transform the empire of conformity, by making persistent gestures of new ocean scapes.


We are a euphoric beast resurrected for an emergency. We are a multi-media tribe of Free Spirits sacrificing everything for the future of the screaming human soul. We invite you to step in, we embrace you with the circle of fire we must fuel to keep alive.


If we burn with the pleasure of creation, we owe it to the ancestors who sacrificed everything to keep the channels overflowing with endless emanations of the truth. Transported to us by open souls, these are the delicate and powerful rhythms we seek to reveal in ways that speak to our present vital hunger ; and which provoke the potential in each of us to destroy walls that block the radiation of this energy.


Through alchemical experimentation, we devise rituals in our free temple laboratory, demonstrating ways to channel the Lost Sacred wisdom into contexts of modernity.


We raise our overflowing crucibles, and our double-edged swords of Compassion and Resistance, to our vision, to our revolution : to daring to believe that art will create universal peace.


WE WILL RESTORE THE MYTHS IN A JOYFUL CRY OF LIBERATION


A Hole In The Head
Eli Kabillio, USA, 1998, 60 min


A Hole In The Head is an hour long documentary about trepanation – the process of boring a hole in the skull.


The documentary film examines the development of ‘modern’ trepanation as used by people in the United Kingdom, The United States, and The Netherlands for the purpose of attaining a higher level of consciousness. This procedure, used by the ancient Egyptians, Incas, and others, is believed by the voluntarily trepanned to allow for renewed brain pulsations that increase brain blood volume and thereby improve brain function. Interviews regarding the history and efficacy of the procedure are also held with some of the world’s most respected neurosurgeons and anthropologists.

Liturgie Apocryphe

"The production of nervous force is directly connected with the diet of an individual, and its refining depends on the very purity of this diet, allied to appropriate breathing exercises.

The diet most calculated to act effectively on the nervous force is that which contains the least quantity of animal matter; therefore the Pythagorean diet, in this connection, is the most suitable.

...

The main object was to avoid introducing into the organism what Descartes called 'animal spirits'. Thus, all animals that had to serve for the nourishment of the priests were slaughtered according to special rites, they were not murdered, as is the case nowadays".
