MORE ABOUT THE EXHIBITION ON VIEW THROUGH AUGUST 11, 2024, DARK GODDESS: SACROPROFANITY:

This exhibition is a mix of ethnography, cultural anthropology, an exploration of the sacred feminine, and a co-creation with each of the individuals featured. At the Bennington Museum, the work takes on a different dimension including a new collaborative element between artists Damon Honeycutt and Shanta Lee as they explore the questions: What does it mean to embody the Dark Goddess? If one were to discover a grimoire of the Dark Goddess, how would it speak to the reader through visuals and sound? The work will include some of Shanta Lee’s photographic images for Dark Goddess: Sacroprofanity, items selected from the Bennington Museum’s permanent collection, and a digital installation accompanied by a sonic element created by composer, performing artist and academic Damon Honeycutt specifically for this iteration of the exhibition. Dark Goddess: Sacroprofanity is an invitation to the audience to walk between the timed and the timeless, between the sacred and profane, the authentic identities we create for ourselves versus what others place upon us, how we define who and what we see through those lenses, and how is all of this embodied in ways that create our reality. As Re, one of the models/collaborators who is also The Mórrigan within the series has framed it, to the viewer encountering the Dark Goddess, “It is either profound or profane.”  Visit the Bennington Museum to explore more.
