"In the brief moment of initial encounter, where excitement, inquisition, amusement, and goosebumps meet, M.E.D.I.U.M. holds sway over the visitor – the spectacle contains indulgent play and surprises that are not often found in "serious" contemporary art spaces. Whether the experience is held as genuine or faked, M.E.D.I.U.M.’s careful navigation of the line between legitimacy and hoax gifts the visitor with the agency to arrive at their own conclusions..."  exerpt from the Catalogue for the exhibition "Dr. Soane's Odditorium of Wonders" by Jane Edmunson

 

MEDIUM is a contemporary art project organized by a troupe of visual & performing artists from Lethbridge, Alberta. They have a pluralistic practice that combines both object-making within a gallery context, and psychically themed performances in settings as diverse as festivals, exhibitions and private events.

Dr. I.M Auftenhauzie, Frater Tham, Madame Symona, and Char Latan offer a broad range of services to the psychically needy, including -- but not limited to -- fortune telling, dream interpretation, seances, sin eating, country-western prophecies, and the extremes of fringe science.
