Investigating the curse cast upon Hastings

 

“The title of the exhibition refers to occultist Aleister Crowley’s alleged curse cast upon Hastings. The story goes that he cursed the town and its inhabitants so that they could never free themselves from it; anyone who left would feel compelled to return. The only way to truly leave is to always carry a pebble with a hole in it, taken from Hastings beach, in your pocket. Marshall interweaves this legend as well as pagan histories and practices and their current celebrations such as Hastings’ Jack in the Green Festival, which sees a ‘Jack’ cloaked in leaves to release the spirit of summer.
