Spells and dissidences

“Spells and dissidences” it’s an exhibition akelarre, a journey through which art becomes a magical ritual, a tool emancipating from the norm, a project that creates our reality and transforms it.

Dissidences that historically have been outside the norm have been persecuted for challenging hegemonic sexual, gender, colonial, religious, social and cultural mandates and accused of heresy. The exhibition recovers these identities and stories, which are also our own, putting them in value and making visible the stories, bodies and practices of witches, magicians, spiritists and shamans.

The works dialogue with each other to become a map that serves us as a tool for reparation and healing around our experiences as heretics. In a clear queer exercise, they question and re-appropriate elements typical of religions and spiritualities to build a new story from the point of view of what we think, take the path and invoke new spaces to be.
