Second Sight: Witchcraft, Ritual, Power

‘Second Sight: Witchcraft, Ritual, Power’ is a group show summoning what is inexplicable and intuitive from artists who consider the stuff of, cultural context and peripheral activity of magic. Contemporary works from the likes of Emily Hunt, Mikala Dwyer and Eric Bridgeman, Naomi Blacklock, Monika Behrens & Rochelle Haley, Judith Wright and Clare Milledge are displayed alongside historic etchings that contain ‘witch iconography’ from Hans Baldung Grien, Albrecht Dürer and Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione.
