IXo-9

26_Ixo_header

IXo-9 is a speculative spirit, a goddess hologram. Their apparition marks a symbolic membrane of passage, a subtle shift of state. It is a realization of body's mortality and its sensuality as portal to different realms of imagination, realities, transient spaces.

IXo emerges as an imaginative conjecture of polytheist spiritual traditions of pre-Christian Slavic folk groups. Records of those were mostly erased during christianization.

IXo-9 is projected on a two-piece fabric, curtain or door-like. They guard the entrance, the passage to the other side. The visitor embody their ritualistic dance to are allowed to pass further through one of the senses.
