Press release

Almine Rech Brussels is pleased to present PSYCHOPOMP, Haley Josephs’ first solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will be on view from September 9 until October 10, 2021, presenting works that have not been previously exhibited.

In existential transformation, the figure of the psychopomp has been theorized as a crucial guide, tasked with bringing incarnate souls to the afterlife. Initially chronicled in Ancient Greek folklore as the psychopompos (spirit, mind, unconscious; companion, escort, messenger), the concept has appeared in Western and Eastern religions in altered invocations.

American artist Haley Josephs’ growing oeuvre has addressed the transformational stages of mortality and its emotional footprints. In PSYCHOPOMP, she continues this work, incorporating her own visions that emerge from her psyche, in opposition to an approach that models source material. Josephs’ visions and revelations are engaged with a lineage of feminine discovery, in light of the glaring lacunae in authorial representations by women, for women. (...)
