PORTALS IN THE MATRIX
solo exhibition by Chanell Angeli
This exhibition is concerned with the complex interplay of spiritual paradigms of diasporic persons and the archival embodiments of ritual in modern day times. The themes within this show include a conversation with the histories of rituals of African descent, lived experiences of the soul, art as a form of communion care and art as intentional portals to the past present and future. With a background in photography the artist uses archival images as a merger between her creative practice and her ancestral work. Believing that each piece is imbued with the energy, emotion and the notion that if you stay long enough, you’ll find another world to be transported to.
