THE POEMS

Boris Eldagsen’s photomedia work investigates the unconscious.

Despite over 200 years of psychology, the unconscious remains as vague and powerful as the gods it emancipated itself from. As a reservoir of our past experiences, it stores urges and feelings that rationally we have no access to. However some images can open these doors, trigger emotions and unlock memories.

Using archetypes and symbolic acts, Eldagsen’s work speaks the language of the unconcious and communicates on a dreamlike level. His visual poetry transports the viewer between the sublime and the uncanny – where the attributes of photography, painting, theatre and film unite.

 

THE POEMS is an ongoing meta-series of single images (numbered or titled) and single videos. Eldagsen presents this work as site-specific installations, often using LIMBOS.

THE LIMBOS are defined combinations of wallpaper, objects, photographs and video, to create an experience in which reality becomes fluid and visitors can walk into an inner space.
