We have entered a new world of psychedelic consciousness. It was birthed by Ken Kesey and raised by Terence McKenna - it is wild, open, Day-Glo, ego-death, downloaded onto our hard drive and written in our DNA. In our world we are witnessing deterioration, a crumbling of the illusions of freedom, equality and stability. We are moving towards fear and the unknown with eyes wide open.
The artists in this show have a sincere and deep relationship with psychedelic culture and entering into new, experimental ways of making and thinking.
