Description

British philosopher, inventor, mathematician, astronomer and visionary Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) is the inspiration behind the London-based Swedenborg Society. In this intriguing collection of essays and documentary material from the society’s achives, artist/poet Brian Catling and writer/filmmaker Iain Sinclair reveal a secret history of Swedenborg: madman or messiah, you choose. The author-performers reconstruct and reflect on the extraordinary events surrounding an exhibition and performance held at the Swedenborg House on February 17, 2010. Catling is known for his teaching at Oxford and exhibitions at the Serpentine and the ICA and Sinclair for his publications and films including Ghost Milk: Calling Time on the Grand Project (2011): they join forces to create this peculiar but seductively engaging journey into the psycho geography of religious ritual.
