THE SHOP

ORACLE HOUSE

Artworks that hide Oracles on their backs rest on the shelves of the shop.To reveal an Oracle, one must buy the artwork. Finding ourselves in a historical moment where the art market is unable to set a price to this inner prophetic process, the artist challenges the market. He offers the opportunity to believe again in the prophetic power of art.

Hidden behind the artwork
What triggers the activation of the Oracles is the personal investment on the chosen work. Engaging in a willing action of economical investment is comparable to the mystical commitments of ancient prophetic actions. The only perceivable source of the hidden Oracles is the artists laboratory confined within the shop. Here, the elements necessary for the prophetic process of purification within the artist are carefully combined.
Envision Future
Change its probability
​Ever since prehistoric hunting depictions, art has always been a vehicle for good omens. A medium used to bypass our consciousness and fortify our faith. The Oracles allowed to disclose one's destiny granting the power to our own free will. The combination of ancient conceptions of the oracles and our post-modern cult of the individual is the starting point for questioning the rapidly approaching loss of universal faith; a momentum to recover our ability to change.
