Chaotic Rhythms is an exhibition of sonic works that explore the various entanglements and intersections of gender and domesticity, work and home, the body and the environment.

Against the backdrop of COVID-19 and its many social and personal complications, we encouraged the artists to step out of their comfort zones and utilize the sonic as a medium through which disruption, distortion, or duality creates a framework for sound pieces within the domestic experience.

Roderick Main, in his book Jung on Synchronicity and the Paranormal wrote: “The culmination of Jung’s lifelong engagement with the paranormal is his theory of Synchronicity, the view that the structure of reality includes a principle of a causal connection which manifests itself most conspicuously in the form of meaningful coincidences”.

Modern Psychologists would categorize these types of occurrences as apophina, the mistaken detection of a pattern or meaning in random or meaningless data, however abnormal physical experiences can connect us to a deeper self, perhaps even to a place of greater understanding.

It is this profound scene of wonder that defies our rational scenes and opens us up to a metaphorical world where we can sense the pre-colonial values embedded within our urban public spaces.

There is a common misconception that people can search for the paranormal to “prove” something about it. The nature of the paranormal affirms the opposite. Unexpectedly, the paranormal finds people: lightforms appear, energy intensifies, unseen presences manifest, the future appears in dreams.

Paradoxically, a social stigma discourages “modern” people from openly talking about paranormal experiences. Many fear that others will question the reality of their experience. They fear being labelled as “crazy.” Here, twenty -three unnamed individuals share a fragment from a paranormal experience they had, and how that moment transformed their way of being, how they think about things. The paranormal finds people. And when they pay attention, their lifeworlds expand.

Intense feelings erupted all over North America in the early 1980s that continued well into the late 1990s over an issue that was said to threaten the very social order of modern society. It was believed that over centuries, Satanists had organized complex societies all over the world and had been performing Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) on unsuspecting victims regularly.

The initial investigations into SRA were conducted by anthropologists and sociologists, who failed to find evidence of SRA actually occurring; instead they concluded that SRA was a result of rumors and folk legends that were spread by “media hype, Christian fundamentalism, mental health and law enforcement professionals and child abuse advocates” (The Dilemma of Ritual Abuse: Cautions and Guides for Therapists. Fraser, GA - 1997).

Nonetheless Satanic Ritual Abuse became a moral panic that seemed to distort normal childhood fears and fantasies into a so-called crime epidemic that was never able to produce evidence of criminal activity.
