Tina Reid, Miche Follano and Jojo Taylor ponder, ‘ What is Sacred Now?’

Written by Digswell Arts

On April 18, 2016

sacredFarmhouse Digswell fellows Tina Reid, Miche Follano and fellow alumni Jojo Taylor are excited to announce their participation in Sacred Art.

Sacred Art promises to be exciting, magical and provocative. Not only does it ask the question ‘What is Sacred Now?’ It engages with a multiplicity of living artists from widely different beliefs, backgrounds, cultures and disciplines.

Following the success of recent exhibitions of Aboriginal Australian and Celtic Art at the British Museum and Folk Art at Tate Britain, Sacred Art responds to the growing public hunger for objects, ideas and experiences whose value is not measured by money alone.

This exploration of the Sacred is intriguing considering the concept has been overlooked in a contemporary era that has prioritized cynicism over belief, nihilism over meaning and shock over meditation.

The rise in awareness of art from other, non-western cultures has seen people remember and re-engage with ideas of spirit-reality. Such ways of considering the world are both pre-historic and utterly present; influences are as modern as quantum physics, digital technology and genetics and as ancient as goddess culture, shamanism and folklore.

Sacred Art takes place at the ancient gardens of Aberglasney, Carmarthenshire, 29 April – 5.May 2016.
