MYSTERY NO SOLVE

"European civilization was built upon the Greek mystery cults of antiquity.

And yet, while Western civilization idolizes its Hellenic origin, our paradigm is one in which the Mystery is something to be solved. The central figure of our time is the Detective, who in his several aspects – the therapist, the critic, the scientist – identifies his labor as a dismantling of the Mystery. Where once the Mystery was a technology for the dissemination of Knowledge, today it is something to be plucked apart and pilfered for petty facts and causal analysis.

 

Thus we present to you artifacts, sacraments,

ritual – Mystery.

The crime scene becomes ritual space.

The murder becomes riddle.

The Detective becomes both artist and critic.

The audience becomes initiate.
