AS ABOVE, SO BELOW
pop-up exhibition l november 1-18, 2023
at F O M A, Guadalupe Center, 333 Montezuma Avenue, Santa Fe
Juried by Toby Jurovics
The exhibition takes the phrase As Above, So Below, as its point of departure, a paraphrase of the second verse of the Emerald Tablet. This phrase was often used by occultists such as Madame Blavatsky, co-founder of the Theosophical Society, and included interpretations that suggested correspondences between the macrocosm and microcosm. These different planes of existence included illusions, some half-real, of minerals, plants, animals and humans.
