Let us talk about the concept of 'venerative art'. How collaborative, syncretic media artifacts traverse cultural borders of traditional and contemporary processes and knowledge systems. Revelation | Revolution works through practice-based artistic experimentation and academic dialogue.
The working assumption is that venerative art can claim local cultural specificity through the means of media technologies and places can be re-sacralized at a time when spatiality becomes increasingly virtualised and absent.
The venerative objects that are created as part of the artistic investigation are a form of a transversal object and act as vessels that embody the history of a culture. The media artists create these transversal objects by a syncretic transformation of traditional craft objects. Experimentation and a dialogue between distinct techniques, materials, and world-views play a fundamental role in the creation of the objects, whose transversal nature resides in interdisciplinary or intercultural processes.
