Ben Jeans Houghton discusses his exhibition ! Blessed Be :)) Merry Part :(( But Again ! at Space In Between on Saturday 25th February 2017.

! Blessed Be :)) Merry Part :(( But Again ! explores – through installation, sculpture and sound – correspondences between Alchemy, Magick and Contemporary Art; the ritual arrangement of objects and symbols in the physical, visible world to create a narrative dialogue that affects and changes the invisible, conceptual and emotional world within us. The exhibition is, in part, a response to the archaic revival; the reinvigoration of ancient knowledge and practice that has been censored, subsumed and manipulated by dogmatic ideological hegemonies for the last few centuries.
