Stephanie Lucas, Welcome (2014)

A collection of works described as having "a shamanic sensibility,” opens next week to inaugurate the Stephen Romano Gallery's new Bushwick location. Featuring art from Charles Dellschau to William Mortensen, Lexicon Infernali is “an exhibition curated to facilitate an inner-body experience while having an outer-body experience. It is a chance to observe your own death while still living and to understand that the word death is just your conscious mind trying to categorize an experience beyond what it is capable of experiencing."

You (yes, you!) can observe your own death at the gallery itself until October 15, or if you can’t swing it, check out some of the images below:
