About the Show:
In the first two-person husband-and-wife show showcased by Jean-Pierre Arboleda and Hannah Yata, these artists delve into the past and explore the roots of Christianity, and by extension, that of religion. Inspired by the book “The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross” by John Allegro, “Origins” takes a look into how the symbolism of the fertility cults and word play in the bible, point to a psychedelic past.
It goes back to the very beginning, with Eve eating the fruit of the tree of good and evil, to Jesus and the Holy Grail, to Easter and Christmas emulating strange imagery into a supposedly Christian tradition. The symbolism of the mushroom is buried in these stories and found in old "Christian" artwork. Allegro argues the secrets of the mushroom were hidden in the bible and personified because of the suppression of the ancient fertility/mushroom cults- so it’s possible that without this suppression the tradition could have continued from word of mouth. Our question is not only if the mushroom was human’s way to understand and communicate with the divine, but if animals don’t have a practice as well. Scientifically, it has been well documented in several cases of mammals to actively seek out and ingest psychoactive substances. Woven in with our revival of these ancient traditions is the idea of consciousness and the role of spiritual practice in not only ourselves but our fellow creatures. ❤️ @jean_pierre_arboleda
