Stephanie Ballantine | The Hysterical Oracle | August 2017
‘The Hysterical Oracle’ is a female figure recurrent in different forms throughout history; chosen at birth she is placed in a temple as a conduit to receive visions informing the running of a future society. The temple is situated on a bed of natural gas which enters her bloodstream as she sits and describes visions in a poetic trance, from knowledge offered by the Oracle and doused with hysteria.
Stephanie Ballantine is a Leeds educated artist now based in Berlin. Having worked as part of the Peripheral collective, a pre-cursor to BasementArtsProject, circa 2008, we welcome her back with an installation featuring a series of photographic works and video piece. On the opening night there will also be a collaborative performance piece with Roma artist Delaine Le Bas.
