ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
"Bringing their thoughts on faith, belief and belonging to The Arches, Hole in my Pocket form their own religion and ask you to become a true believer."
In the summer of 2010 with the Pope coming to town, it seemed like a good time to open that divisive question of religion and see what could be found.
Our current generation say they have no religion, in a 2006 Guardian poll 63% of people said they were not religious. Hole in my Pocket therefore set out to steal all the best bits from other religions and form a new religion of their own - Himptology. It was a democratic religion based around the ideas of creativity (not creation) and part of their Arches exhibition focused on audience interaction, asking where mainstream religion has been going wrong and calling for suggestions for what a new 21C belief system could entail. www.holeinmypocket.com.
