Title: Exhibition The Witch’s Journey
The main objective of this project is to give visibility to women who practice or identify with the ancient culture of witchcraft through NFT art. The works depict different stages of a woman on her path to becoming or discovering herself as a witch. The exhibition will deal with witchcraft as a form of resistance and affirmation of the feminine in a world ruled by patriarchy. The exhibition will be composed of twenty-two works inspired by oracular letters about the process of “becoming a witch”.
Probably artists and supposed “witches” have always been the people who have suffered the most prejudice and persecution throughout human history. Often art takes on an air of magic, and in witchcraft there is also a lot of art. Artists and witches have always been on the fringes of society at the same time that they were also at its vanguard. Thus, we think that bringing these two universes “witchcraft” and “art” together through NFT technology will be something disruptive and innovative. The works in the exhibition belong to a witch-artist who will bring to the public a bit of her culture, experience, and quest through her art. Our intention is that the works will lead the public to know and think about ancestral traditions and dialogue with alternative aspects of the deep feminine connected to the forces of nature, the challenges and opportunities of life and the movements of the cosmos.
The Witch’s Journey exhibition takes place on May 16, 2022. This date was chosen because it is the first day of the full moon in May, which according to some traditions of the witches’ universe is the moment when our experiences and values are illuminated by the clear light of wisdom and when our truest and deepest intentions are revealed.
An informational video will be produced about the exhibition. In this video a guest will get a basic oracular consultation, when they will choose five cards and the witch-artist will perform the oracular interpretation of them.
The Witch’s Journey Exhibition: The gathering of all the visual works will become an NFT, to compose this final work a JPEG file will be produced.
