Whilst in Berlin in September 2019, the visit to the exhibition at Martin Gropius Bau in which 10 artists responded to the triptych by Hieronymus Bosch called “Garden of Earthly Delights”, inspired our collective to make an exhibition of a similar response.
(“Hand of God” is best watched on a wide screen computer with headphones which enable you to feel the sound scape).
“Hand of God” uses the shutters of the Garden of Earthly Delights to book-end the time from the third day of creation (a pre-human world) to similar occurrence which perhaps alludes to a post-human world, a restoration of the initial state.
In between, the Hand of God performs a brachioproctic journey through humankind, in this case represented by a trinity. This deep tissue digital intervention, this consensual invasive act of intense intimacy is normally only performed between partners with the highest level of trust and acceptance. Giving an unparalleled feeling of fullness during which more tissue/pixels are being stimulated at the same time, strangely, it also allows a full observation of the receiver.
This is a visio/haptic interpretation of that observation.
The sound scape was created around male and female throat singing – modified. Some of it has become extreme deep throat singing. Kulning, Tuvan throat singing, Inuit throat singing.
