They have made for themselves a golden calf and have worshipped it and sacrificed to it […] Old Testament, Book of Exodus, Verse 32

The term fetish originally described an inanimate object which people believed to contain supernatural power. Many cultures have produced talismans, statues, good-luck charms, and so on, which are said to possess some sort of spirit or magic.

The term was generally used to describe these kinds of objects from Africa in particular, which Western travellers found fascinating. The term is now primarily used in Western culture to refer to sexual attraction to an object rather than a person, as well as a broader infatuation with commodities such as money or status symbols.

For Stream’s second exhibition, we are asking the artists involved to produce work which considers the human tendency to worship; to elevate objects, ideas or people to semi-divine or miraculous s…
