An immersion into a world of art.
A walk up the wooden stairs to the Angel Gallery in South Street will land you in a world of artistic peacefulness. Lebanese born Azul-Valerie Thome and Katz Cowley the creator of the childrens book that has become a hilarious viral you-tube sensation.
Azul is weaving a colourful belt that has been commissioned using a simply devised loom apparatus. She is the founder of SOULand as an antidote to our current commercially controlled world engaging in nature based ritual, training art and mentorship as a way to re-aquaint humanity with a deep relationship with the earth and “co-create the world of our longing“. It’s not just idle talk. She has worked with an architect envisioning a strangely ancient yet futuristic building design for an ‘Earth Temple’ that she is hoping to bring into reality on the outskirts of major towns as a place of retreat that can also have hidden places for refugees. There is no association with religion as such and it purely about earth based connection. There is a hope to create the first in a location outside of Brussels. Back in the Angel Gallery, a small yurt is placed in the room which is a space where visitors and stay in meditation or simply sit peacefully.
Katz Cowleys work has a light, ethereal sense and in many cases, an obvious sense of humour with a combination of painted and sculpted works. One of the pieces is directly above the heat emanations of a heater that playfully brings the hair of a tiny sculptured face to life.
There are a series of BeWilded workshops and events which are listed in the what’s-on section of this website and details on their own facebook event page in several locations including on the Sharpham Estate.
The Angel Studio is currently Be-Wilded’s central ‘home’ for several multi-event driven immersive experiences and happenings.
