Elemonials (Icelandic diary excerpt, 2016)



Elemonials (evoking elements and rituals) originates from a very vivid dream I had upon arrival in Iceland. It hints at an essence common to and connected with all things on Earth, and life itself.

Altough the series is another kind of travel diary, it discards the notion of chronology: to me, its main subject – the water in various formations – manifests itself everywhere at the same time.

This realisation and the awe inspired by my surroundings heightened my awareness of the present, overspilling time and space and leading me to a blissful nothing: a mirroring state – meditation on a half-forgotten world – the primordial miracle – being(s) human and otherwise – the sense state before time, before birth.
