In 2016 and 2017 I have organized seven Healing Heptagons in total. For each session I’ve made visual works, costumes, jewellery and a riso printed publication with the performance script, most of it directly for sale after the session. People bought the objects but the objects were handed over to them after a ceremony in the forthcoming session.
The Healing Heptagon is part of the cult Blue Creates the Open Space.
Blue Creates the Open Space is a healing cult roughly modelled after rules of the Christian cult my grandmother is part of since the mid-nineties. The BCtOS-core themes are: the colour blue, (the aesthetics of) needlework, the number seven, humour, learning and singing together. BCtOS however is not a judgemental meta-project, but an open way of understanding interdependence and power. When I got ill myself I decided to organise Healing Heptagons, to heal myself and others.
The cult’s symbol is a blue heptagon, in this blue (healing) heptagon everything takes place.
PLEASE NOTE THIS REPRESENTATION OF BLUE CREATES THE OPEN SPACE DOESN’T COME CLOSE TO BEING PART OF THE CULT.
