Flicker @ Bunker in Silico, St. Louis, MO  ///  March 2022

Solo Exhibition

An encounter with something else that moves like a flame in quickly changing forms of light and dark.  Something abject and something sublime.  The edges of understanding and an uncanny sensation. A wry smile showing that a change in situation is slightly absurd. Flimsy realities abound.  A chuckle and a groan.

On Tuesday March 8th, 2011 LUX by MAUREEN KEAVENY opens it's doors at THE FREE CHURCH. 7 pm 

 

Lux is a measure of intensity and illumination.

 

Following the vehement voices from the land of feverish deserts, vast ruffled oceans, lofty mountain peaks, M.K. roused and disturbed, traveled high and low, seeks a sparkling cognizance, freshly, taking up sanctuary amongst the congregation of light and life. (Or: Maureen Keaveny recently relocated from Providence, RI to Los Angeles, CA after completing her MFA in Photography at The Rhode Island School of Design in 2007)

 

And starting at 9 pm !!

THE FREE CHURCH

 

Inspired by a rich history of cults and new religions in Los Angeles, as well as by the persistent trend towards spirituality in contemporary art and music, The Free Church of Public Fiction will open its doors from February 23rd to May 6th 2011. 

 

Throughout the next three months, The Free Church will host a series of installations, cult dinners, musical performances, rituals and ceremonies. The four walls of the space will be taken over by a set of artists, musicians and performers in turn. They will each become spiritual leaders of sorts and construct a new church out of the same frame.

 

In this city that cultivates eccentricities and theatricality, religion is a customizable term. The "Free Church" is a name inspired by Thomas Jefferson's writing on the separation of state and faith; the foundation of this country.  In this case, our church is free of government but also of religion itself; it is now a term re-opened to interpretation.

 

To all you scribes and artists and practitioners of magic through whom these spirits have been manifested...

Nothing is true. 

Everything is permitted
