Witch Ones : Altered Altar

When an adverse experience alters your entire reality it can be densely traumatic. A person you considered sacred shifts into a dark figure in your life. A space you felt most safe, you avoid as if it’s contaminated.
We understand… We run from this darkness, from these people who wronged us, from these spaces… but no matter how fast we run, the pain catches up.
In Witch Ones : Altered Altar, artists are invited to explore this moment of change, where life all at once isn’t the same anymore and Betamax curator Rachel Zottenberg has picked work to suit this theme.

What does the word Witch mean to us? We don’t want to offend as it’s deeply personal to everyone.
We mean Witch as an immediate nod to the policy of empathy. As mirrors of society, Witches have always reflected truth, even the more distressing parts of it. As conduits of energy, Witches can transform even the most pernicious and systematic evils with boundless gifts of empathy and fierce loyalties to the earth and all her beings. The world of the Witch gives us space to react to injustice. Not shy away in fear. We are not evil, no… But we are angry. And so we create. Rituals can be as much about anger as about healing. Rachel and her team have built a spiralling altar-like structure in the middle of the gallery to symbolize both the adversity and the healing of trauma. The act of building, creating, painting.. all rituals that provide an outlet and a cathartic way to symbolically affect the consequences that life and society don’t often offer.
We imagine a better world where those who do intentional harm are destroyed and people are protected from them ever harming again. And lies are laid to rest forever.
Witch One: Altered Altar

‘I will take these stones you’ve thrown at me and build myself an empire.’

Art Social: Subjective Reality

Immerse yourself into an evening of art and discover local Vancouver artists all while enjoying a drink at our cash bar and exploring our tattoo studio turned art gallery. #LATArtSocial

Our current artist showcase features works from 17 different artists (listed below) in a collaborative showcase based on the theme: "Subjective Reality".

Perception is filtered by individual experiences. We invited artists to explore how one person's reality may differ from others, due to their subjective experiences. What is real for you, may not be real for someone else. How is your reality subjective?

**Original and framed artwork available for sale!**
Limited prints available for purchase only at Art Social events.

The Art Social is a FREE ongoing monthly event.
7-9pm on the last Friday of every month.
Hosted at Liquid Amber Tattoo & Art Collective located in Gastown Vancouver at 62 Powell Street.
