the river goddess Lethe – river of oblivion, symbol of exploration into the unknown into the meta-rational, into the unexplored corners of our consciousness – not a mental exploration, but a fluid one, a sexual one, an ecstatic one
Nyx is a video about one man’s journey deep out of time and into the arms of the night. He disrupts all that is reality and organum in order to unite with the night. With the freedom darkness of pure emotion. A connection within death, eros and dream.
A video about the world forming and the braking away. Coming from desire and culture and transforming into insight. We often forget about this thin thread that we acquire in time. Ambrosia the moment to moment pure inspiration.
Vellum is our new video. A video about our inner landscapes and worlds that come out of us, that are like ecstatic animals that need to come out. Here they come as words on skin that give sensations that create need for release. It is about a way of communicating with our hidden inner selves. Creating a path towards it.
We are defected
beyond human nature
beyond unconscious drive and action
We do not reproduce our bodies
we replicate in meaning and belief
We enter death as mirror
ambiguous, mysterious, non-thing
We are pure perception
pure, becoming, fluid.
Afraid of our love for the world,
Afraid of our mortal defect,
Against human nature.
Uniting living and dying and being
and non-being and flesh and time
and pain and ecstasy,
we explore ourselves in glory.
About the evergrowing everchanging roots of our inner beings. About our wax outer coating and rugged containers of our souls.
We are scared of the darkness and we are scared of the un-natural, but inside there is another world with such different laws.
Our stories, our ideas, our thoughts and feelings need to be brought up into nature.
For me Art reminds us that God is in everything, more or less, deeper or shallower. Through Art we define God. Again and again. Art keeps creating and remembering us about God’s presence in all.
Art has created God. Art has created Religion. Art is necessary for it keeps God real, always becoming without a beginning without and end.
God comes shapeless, from nothingness, enters the world becomes form, formal and dies. God is flux, coming from nothingness into coarser and coarser shape until stone, until wind. Lost in oblivion. God needs God needs God needs God.
As long as there is God humans are at their best and the world is perfect. When people will forget about God, will feel no more the need to create It, then will be the fall of man.
Today Art explores for God into urban society, in skin, in individual detached conscience, in social conflict, in Taboos, in beauty, in purity, in garbage, in concepts, in accidents, in unconscious, in ugliness, in pain, in sex, in popular culture, in professionalism, in corporatism, in Art…
Where else does Art looks for God today?
This is a video I made starting from the problem I have with conciliating existence and reality. It is a superposition of different notes I made sawed together in an organic time/scape. In a trance like pattern of movement of the body, of the camera and of the ideas being described.
Reality is so multilayered and breaching through is so rare. It is our most primal effort. Is remaking patterns so that they will fit together into nothingness. Or misfitted.
