RITUAL: A sequence of activities involving gestures, words, and objects, performed in a sequestered place, and performed according to set sequence.

RITUAL is on show at There Is, 49 Stuart Street, Northbridge, from 22 February until 16 March 2019 as a satellite exhibition of the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery

The making of art is itself ritualistic, the sequestered place is often the studio, the sequence of activities always highly individualised and motivated by a compelling rationale. All the artists invited to participate in this exhibition have explored this idea of ritual process to examine key ideas in human experience that seek knowledge, comfort or pose questions about our identity and how we engage as social beings.

In the works they have created, the 12 artists consider how rituals impact our culture, our communities, our lives, and how we identify ourselves as individuals and as members of larger groups within those communities.
