“Stand before it and there is no beginning,” said the philosopher Laozi. “Follow it and there is no end. … Empty yet inexhaustible, it gives birth to infinite worlds.” Call it God or Dao or just the ultimate mystery, people in all eras and cultures have believed in a reality that is the source of all creation but cannot itself be seen. In Ritual Spirit, contemporary artists explore this supernatural realm and its deities, demons and ghosts. The results are at once touching and transcendent.
