In Tantra, the letters and corresponding sounds of the alphabet are considered to be infused with the power of the divine mother. In certain combinations, the matrikas (little mothers) are said to exert magical powers.
Drawing techniques which bypass conscious control allow us to access the power of the unconscious, perhaps even the supraconscious!
Hosted by Logical Unsanity Books and Miscellaneous Phantasmagoria, “Matrika” is an exhibition of literature inspired works on paper incorporating drawing techniques developed by the Surrealists.
Coinciding with the book warehouse open day, the works will be on show on Saturday 28 October. You are invited to see the art, browse the book warehouse and sit and read as long as you like. A workshop exploring surrealist techniques will be held the following day.
