As we catch up with our coverage of some amazing exhibitions that have taken place in December, we wanted to share this Ken Sortais interview with you. Service au Bar also posted some images of the opening night which we also share with you. Ken Sortais has risen on the Paris scene in 2012. He recently exhibited new work in London at Galleries Goldstein in a solo show titled “Princes of Darkness”. In the video interview Ken talks about some of the inspiration behind his paintings and his transition from professional golfer to contemporary artist. We are big fans of Ken’s work and this show is a must see if you are in London.


If your indisposition is a burden, if it affects your life, if it tyrannizes you and annihilates your desires, here is an ancestral remedy to cure almost everything, but be careful, it is precarious. This method is not taught in any books and can not be accessible to everyone. To make it work, you need to believe in it. Believe blindly. You have to devote yourself to the spirits you will try to call. From this moment, such an act of submission is not accessible to all : prudes, cowards and religious people may rebuff. This is nothing else but black magic, magic that has harmful repercussions on your life and on the ones close to you. In order to act, there is no other choice but to empty yourself from your consciousness : you must sedate it. Firstly, you will give birth to eighteen entities, each of them symbolizing evils buried since the beginning of Humanity. Eighteen apostles of evil whom you will know nothing about, whom you should not try to give meaning, but rather materialize as soon as you detect them. These spirits can take different forms, and their representations change according on the person considering them. Their nature is never-changing, buried in the most archaic layer of our minds. Once materialization is operated, you have to prove allegiance by exposing these evil faces : these forces arrogantly feed themselves vicariously through the individual’s attention, here is the secret of this unusual recovery. By flattering the egos of these insatiable visages, you will allow them to enter their own process of creation, and the magic will happen. By entrusting them with a feeling of independence, you will fully prove that you are only the hand submitted to their will… I must recall that this is not an entirely safe experience for you and your loved ones, but past recoverings have proven the cure’s efficiency… Therefore, after a period of gestation, these small evils will concentrate their energies, all carrying a common will for revenge and you will see, nights after nights, the birth of their univocal venger arbiter : the golem. Protean, and largely capricious, the golem’s power of healing is immense. Traditionally, the spirit would penetrate darkest abysses of individuals to make them vomit on the surface. Do not be shocked or the magic would be shattered. Embrace the interpretation of your real nature. Do not fear recovery anymore.
