The Garden of Fernal Delights


May 30th – June 27th

Opening reception Saturday, May 30th 6-9PM

The Garden of Fernal Delights is a sublime and paradisiacal place where all the delights of the natural world from the sexual to the surreal, the visionary to the instinctive, are celebrated as fundamental joys of being alive. The Garden of Fernal Delights is a multi-dimensional place where all is conscious and divinely intelligent from the animal to mineral to vegetable to the aetheric. All can communicate, co-create, cooperate. This Garden of Delights knows no violence, no notion of original sin, no hierarchy, no fixed temporal system. Rather it is a place of magic, of play and playfulness. It resides in the Garden of the heart and has no limit to its creativity.
The Fernal concept was conceived by artist Gromyko Semper and then developed together with artists Liba WS, Bruce Rimmell and a community of lowbrow, visionary, surrealist, magic realists and fantastic artists. The Encyclopeadia of Fernal Affairs and its traveling show express architecture, mythology, culture and all the other things that make the Garden magical.
