The Temple of the Occult
The Temple of the Occult is an installation type curatorial project which aims to explore artwork inspired by occult traditions. The exhibition takes the form of the interior of an imagined temple, becoming an installation made from the work of many artists. The exhibition itself is also a functioning shrine, containing religious truths concealed within its composition. In the Temple of the Occult these veiled truths start to bleed into the fabric of contemporary culture, albeit clothed in allegory and disguised by symbol.
Temple of the Occult draws together occult artists from a various sources, several found through secretive occult Orders, others from their practice and involvement in contemporary exhibitions and events. Most of the artists in this exhibition are practising occultists, some of whom occupy leading positions in their respective Orders and have been initiated into the higher mysteries of their organisations.
