HOBO : Orishas : Camp n Furnace
Image and installation : redscouse
We were approached by the group organising the Brazilica fringe ball in 2012 to provide guidance in theme and design elements. We decided on a theme of voodoo and thru research discovered Orisha - the voodoo gods. As a teaser and advertising we started an intervention project, making, photographing and installing the little nutgods across the city. The project continues.
Orishas are the gods of the W African Yoruban religion that mutated under slavery into Voodoo, Vodoun, Santeria, Condomble etc across the Caribbean and the Americas. As pagan gods they are benign, personal and multi-faceted. These are part of on-going interventions by TBJ and DBJ.
