THE TABERNACLE invites you to experience the travelling tent of wandering, with a multi-sensory painting installation through the lens of gabber music’s pharmakon.

 

The tabernacle was a tent made by Moses in ancient times, built under the premise of being God’s dwelling on Earth; the tent was omnipotent, well known for its potential to emancipate or destroy. Gabber music began in Rotterdam in the early 90s and was quickly adopted by hardcore ravers in Thatcher’s Britain, it is characterized by its relentlessly fast, loud and distorted sound. Creating an environment in which the audience becomes one collective body, worshipping not the DJ but the experience itself. Pharmakon is defined as the poison, remedy or scapegoat, the tabernacle conceptualises this in two formats: through the bodies and the spaces that we inhabit.

When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the Lord:

So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.

Exodus 30:21-21

BABY RAVE X GOO GAA GALLERY at THE TABERNACLE

GOO GAA GALLERY is an initiative set up by Liat Rosenthal to consider the youngest of viewers in the gallery environment. In collaboration with TJ Boulting BABY RAVES were held every Thursday for the duration of THE TABERNACLE, in which carers could bring their little ones for a slightly quieter but equally pumping experience.
