Pop Culture Pilgrimage

The Ox Pop Culture Pilgrimage Tour is a sibling extension of the Ox UK Tour – another research based venture whereby we visit places and sites of pop cultural significance. Sites include iconic movie locations, filming locations, rock shrines, and graves, which hold pop cultural significance to us, our work, and practice.

The Pop Culture Pilgrimage is an exploration into the religious devotion of fandom, where we create our own sacred spaces, and further explore the notion of pilgrimage within places of pop cultural significance. These sites and the accompanying pilgrimages are where we offer our heroes the forum to become The New Gods, as these pilgrimages often possess the opportunity for worship, gifting, memorial, and prayer in a ritual setting.

April 2017

George Michael’s Memorial Garden, Highgate, London.

On St. George’s Day we paid another visit to George Michael’s house to see the shrine, where we discovered the green opposite George’s house has been transformed into a makeshift memorial garden, displaying all the offerings and tributes left outside.
