Desiderium, A Healing Ritual
DESIDERIUM: noun, | des.i.de.ri.um | \desƏ’dirēƏm, -eza-\ plural desideria \-ēƏ\ : an ardent desire or longing, especially : a feeling of loss or grief for something lost.
Made in collaboration with Jordan Sanford on June 17, 2016 at ‘sindikit gallery in Baltimore. DESIDERIUM, A Healing Ritual was a performance that explored trauma, grief and healing through the potential liminality implicit in magick rituals. The artists served as the intermediaries between participants and the elemental forces by embodying sacred entities who “consume” the grief of others, to in turn help us remember, heal, and cleanse ourselves—and each other—from our personal and collective grief.
