A transmutation through warped realms, this new body of work manifests the ritualistic remnants of a fictional hyper-contemporary, yet ancient folkloric cult — ‘Cathedral of Worms’. Exploring ideas around the esoteric, Irish burial rituals and magick, the Cathedral asks one thing of its prospects, How much spiritual currency do you possess? And how much is it worth?
