Description

London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE showcases a series of contemporary art commissions, responding and bringing fresh perspectives to the site’s archaeological history. Our latest commission is DREAM-BRIDGE-OMNIGLYPH by Leo Robinson.

Inspired by the Roman Temple of Mithras discovered on the Bloomberg site, Robinson explores the ancient myth of Mithras through an immersive space, evocative of the initiation ceremonies thought to have been held in the Temple. Responding to the journey of finding personal identity within a complex cultural heritage, the artist has converted the space into a contemporary ritual ground through imagined cultural images and sacred objects.

The exhibition comprises of an archway emanating transitory sounds; a large tapestry, serving as a psychological mind map of symbols, images and pathways; and a series of fantastical instruments cast in bronze, influenced by historical harps and string instruments from West Africa and Ethiopia. The inclusion of reimagined, pre-colonial West Indian rock carvings (petroglyphs) and new relics throughout the space contributes to Robinson’s practice of evolving new rituals and traditions to fill the gap left by colonial displacement.
