Our artistic community, GANG OF WITCHES, was born in 2016. This multifaceted project is meant to grow during 9 consecutive years, each one being dedicated to a celestial body, cosmic and archetypal silver lining of this artistic adventure. Our major objective is to establish a protected space for reflection, exchange and creation, a bubble undisturbed by any productive constraints, rich in singular propositions, fertile, powerful, committed.
We develop autonomous and alternative diffusion networks, notably through the yearly publication of a book, launched during an event, and an eponymous musical project. Their mission is to present our latest creations and other artists’, to share our battles, as well as thinkers’ and activists’ that are resonating with our philosophy, widening our circle every day.
Knowledgeable, independent and powerful, often feared, sometimes mocked, always with a halo of mystery, the witch is the master of her identity. Her image marks the place of women in society and the combats of each era. Since the 1960’s she is a feminist, ecologist, anti-capitalist icon, and the perfect symbol for our gang.
The artistic disciplines
We are painters, sculptors, writers, photographers, video artists, film makers, illustrators, tattoo artists, musicians, dancers, performers.
Our gang of “good witches” is situated at the threshold of the material and spiritual sphere, of the visible and invisible, of the conscious and the unconscious mind, of humor and revolt, of resistance and resilience. We voyage from one to the other, creating points of convergence, opening portals, questioning the structure of our patriarchal and anthropocentric societies.
