Director Statement

The Alchemy Project began in 2004 when they developed 19 action statements, which serve as the titles and concepts for rituals. Since then, they have been investigating, analyzing, and documenting their process of inventing a poetic science of flesh and bone as a means to create "alchemy." The Alchemy Project's Research Archives consist of a myriad of interdisciplinary artworks: performances, installations, videos, photos, objects, and irrational experiments.
