Light as a Feather… is an exploration of the continuing cultural influence of the teen witch. In the wake of a shifting global political climate, magic manifests as a pop cultural symbol for empowerment and positivism. The exhibition is comprised of installations and a series of performative rituals; a collaborative network of artistic practices, harnessing witchcraft and magic in its many forms. The Moana coven bring together the work of established and emerging artists, conjuring quasi-rituals and pseudo-scientific experiments to call upon the witch’s enduring feminist strength and the role of superstition and talismans in our prevailing mood of uncertainty.
Originally presented at Domain House, Glebe. November 4 - 12 2017 for HOBIENNALE.
