Haunting new mixed-media show, Coven, comes to the Baltic Triangle, Getintothis‘ Paul Higham stirs the cauldron.
Coven, a new mixed-media art exhibition dealing with the occult and supernatural opens Friday October 24 in the Baltic Triangle‘s creative space, 24 Kitchen Street.
Created by Liverpool-based artists Katie Craven and Adam Scovell, Coven explores haunting imagery and the esoteric by placing them in the context of the natural landscape.
A Fine Art graduate of Liverpool John Moores University, Craven is an illustrator and comic book artist, while Scovell is a filmmaker and writer, currently studying for a PhD in music at the University of Liverpool.
Among the works on display is Tarot, a short film by Scovell in collaboration with Liverpool band, Bird, who ‘enact an occult ritual’ in the film.
Other works include a newly-commissioned mural by Craven and The Coastal Path, a short ghost story film made in collaboration with the Shiny New Festival. Filmed using a Super 8 camera, the film is a haunting depiction of a path on the coastline of the west Wirral peninsula.
The exhibition at 24 Kitchen Street opens at 5pm until 8pm on Friday 24 October and will then run until Tuesday 28 October, 4-6pm each evening – so get your skates on. Those in the area to see Mogwai at Camp and Furnace as part of Liverpool Music Week should check it out.
