Raft draws inspiration from: ‘The Archaic Revival’ – the invigoration of principles and practices whose efficacy was mislaid during the divorce of science and spirituality. ‘Alchemical Practice’ – the ritual arrangement of persons and symbols in the physical world to create a narrative dialogue that changes the conceptual and emotional world within us. ‘Self-exploration’ – the quest to know oneself via a navigation of our emotional and historical experience of being.
Created and performed as a collaboration between; Nicole Vivien Watson, Matthew De Kersaint Giraudeau, and Ben Jeans Houghton. With support from Arts Council England and partners; CCA: Glasgow, Berwick Visual Arts and Workplace Gallery.
