Rational (Working Statement):

“Ritual as an Art form”: Artist, Designers and Writers all have some rituals when working on their own pieces and projects and so this Project is the focus on that Ritual and the Foundations of our Working Practises.

 

Details and Content:

Taking inspiration from artist work such as Heather Hansen’s “Empty Gestures” (2013),  Bohyun Yoon’s “Merge” (2004), AA Bronson’s “Invocation of the Queer Spirit” (2008-2012), Ryan Brewer’s “Sacred Spheroid (Dissolution Yantra)” (2010-2011), Trisha Brown’s “Revolution” (2006) and Jody Jock’s “10 ov Swords” (2011-2012).

We are presenting to you the First of the CABAL Projects: Ritual. This Project is aimed to focus you back to the foundations of Ritual work and how we can create ritual work through a range of materials and methods. You can submit as much work as you want in any given material. This work can be a new creation or an earlier piece of work as long as that work fulfils the project criteria.

 

 

We are opening this Project up to several criteria: 

Ritual Construction: Work undertaken during ritual.

Examples of this are a work of stream-of-consciousness style creative non-fiction such as “Conjurers”. An Object created using ritual methods such as Heather Hansen’s “Empty Gestures” (2013), or a Painting, Automatic Drawing, or Sculpture that has achieved construction during a working Ritual or Ritual practises

 

Ritual Action: Performance Art of Ritual.

An Example of these criteria is the performance Ritual and the Documentation of Ryan Brewer’s “Post-Paradise” (Black Lodge Sweat), (2013). Documentation of Meditation and Path working practices in conjunction with Ritual work.  The documentation of said Ritual Action can be submitted in the form of Video, Audio or Image.  

 

The Focus: Work targeted on a Result

This is work that embodies the pure focus and intent of the actions of Ritual. Examples can be taken from Austin Osman Spare, His work in Sigil construction. Another example is the work of Hollie Anderson and her “Totems for Scared Children”, and the Hokō style figure.  

 

Pure Ritual: The Essence of Ritual

This work is that which has the essence of Pure Ritualism and the practices of the Artist. Examples of these criteria are taken from AA Bronson’s “Invocation of the Queer Spirit” (2008-2012), Ryan Brewer’s “Sacred Spheroid (Dissolution Yantra) (2010-2011).

 

Our Mantra for this Project: Ritual is “Don’t just make Art be Art”, be the Ritual Action, Construction, Focus and Purity of your work and Ritual.

 

Project Submission Guidelines and Copyright information can be found on the Blog. We regret that we won’t be accepting: recipes for rituals/ spell work. How-to manual of the occult are not Art or Culture and don’t fulfil the above Criteria. Please provide your contact details so that we may keep in contact in regards the hosting of your work.

 

Enjoy, and we here at the CABAL Project hope to see your work in the coming months.

-David M. Johnson (Creative Director)

“My work is an experiment into the marriage of spiritual occultism and experimental psychological tools in the form of Kinaesthetic Mental Learning tools as Sacred Objects.
As a practicing Occultist my work is highly influenced by religious texts and practice from many of the world’s religions and cultures, I have used sources from Christian and Jewish Mysticism, Modern poetry and Occult practices as bases for the concept of each individual piece.

I am a keen observer in the purity of material and the working of the materials from the source to the final object.  During the period of work I had undertaken a complete submersion into the practices of ritual and an almost priesthood; abstaining, fasting and praying daily in the pursuit of a pure Form. Much of my work was undertaken in a complete ritualistic manner, each stage of the Forms production was laid out precisely from conception of design to the final finish of the wood”

As a practicing Occultist my work is highly influenced by religious texts and practice from many of the world’s religions and cultures, I have used sources from Christian and Jewish Mysticism, Modern poetry and Occult practices as bases for the concept of each individual piece.

I am a keen observer in the purity of material and the working of the materials from the source to the final object.  During the period of work I had undertaken a complete submersion into the practices of ritual and an almost priesthood; abstaining, fasting and praying daily in the pursuit of a pure Form. Much of my work was undertaken in a complete ritualistic manner, each stage of the Forms production was laid out precisely from conception of design to the final finish of the wood”

Rational (Working Statement):

“Ritual as an Art form”: Artist, Designers and Writers all have some rituals when working on their own pieces and projects and so this Project is the focus on that Ritual and the Foundations of our Working Practises.

 

Details and Content:

Taking inspiration from artist work such as Heather Hansen’s “Empty Gestures” (2013),  Bohyun Yoon’s “Merge” (2004), AA Bronson’s “Invocation of the Queer Spirit” (2008-2012), Ryan Brewer’s “Sacred Spheroid (Dissolution Yantra)” (2010-2011), Trisha Brown’s “Revolution” (2006) and Jody Jock’s “10 ov Swords” (2011-2012).

We are presenting to you the First of the CABAL Projects: Ritual. This Project is aimed to focus you back to the foundations of Ritual work and how we can create ritual work through a range of materials and methods. You can submit as much work as you want in any given material. This work can be a new creation or an earlier piece of work as long as that work fulfils the project criteria.

 

 

We are opening this Project up to several criteria: 

·         Ritual Construction: Work undertaken during ritual.

Examples of this are a work of stream-of-consciousness style creative non-fiction such as “Conjurers”. An Object created using ritual methods such as Heather Hansen’s “Empty Gestures” (2013), or a Painting, Automatic Drawing, or Sculpture that has achieved construction during a working Ritual or Ritual practises

 

·         Ritual Action: Performance Art of Ritual.

An Example of these criteria is the performance Ritual and the Documentation of Ryan Brewer’s “Post-Paradise” (Black Lodge Sweat), (2013). Documentation of Meditation and Path working practices in conjunction with Ritual work.  The documentation of said Ritual Action can be submitted in the form of Video, Audio or Image.  

 

·         The Focus: Work targeted on a Result

This is work that embodies the pure focus and intent of the actions of Ritual. Examples can be taken from Austin Osman Spare, His work in Sigil construction. Another example is the work of Hollie Anderson and her “Totems for Scared Children”, and the Hokō style figure.  

 

·         Pure Ritual: The Essence of Ritual

This work is that which has the essence of Pure Ritualism and the practices of the Artist. Examples of these criteria are taken from AA Bronson’s “Invocation of the Queer Spirit” (2008-2012), Ryan Brewer’s “Sacred Spheroid (Dissolution Yantra) (2010-2011).

 

Our Mantra for this Project: Ritual is “Don’t just make Art be Art”, be the Ritual Action, Construction, Focus and Purity of your work and Ritual.

Part of the Work that we are doing here at the Project is creating an Archive of historical Occult imagery and early 20th century occult photography.
