Our Future, Our Fate, Our Fortune
A performance by Jess Dobkin
Commissioned and presented at the Akimbo Booth in the Publication Section at Art Toronto 2017
Below is an except of text about the performance project.
Art Toronto coincides with the season of The Thinning of the Veil, a time for magic, mysteries and miracles, when connection to higher realms and communication between the material and spiritual worlds is most easily available.
Oracle Jess Dobkin, art-spirit guide, invited you to a performance art oasis within the larger art fair environment. Welcome to the marketplace flip-side where there is nothing to buy or sell; here our currency is energy, our deals are celestial, our contracts are sacred.
We are in a time of decaying systems, mass violence, rapid change, radiant activism and emerging truths. Fate, fortune and future are collective concerns, it is time to shift our forecasting from “what will happen to me?” to “what will come of us?” The portal is open. Bring your questions and consciousness. Art ancestors will be called, spells will be cast, we will behold the past and glimpse into the future to be here now.
