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.
