Inspired by such movies as Carnival of Souls and The Mask, The Hole by Jim Shaw explores the aesthetics of early 60's horror films as part of Shaw's ongoing series of films in his Oist project. "I wanted to see what might happen in an alternate history, to try and formulate a religion I might want to be a member of, to create a framework I could make a wide variety of art pieces in. No one has to be an Oist." """The Hole" - Courtesy of the artist and Praz-Delavallade, Paris.
