Rituals / re-enchantments 2013- present

 

“Magic rites justify themselves by success; when they fail to produce their proper emotional results, the performer feels that he has been betrayed into making a fool of himself” (Huxley; Eyeless in Gaza) 

 

The rituals are attempts at negotiating a territory of increasing unfimiliarity; a world on the cusp.  I infuse midsummer with a resalting of  the Baltic. I give the New Year a meaningful beginning by going to a tree-lined alley,bringing some of my favourite things: A sack, ropes, sticks-.  A windfell pine is sought out for shelter on All Hallow´s Eve.  Raking up leaves on Walpurgis night into a pile to disappear into; have the wind blow it all away.
