THE CHAMBER OF REFLECTION
PHOTOGRAPHY | WALLPAPER | VIDEO
An Anteroom Installation (2018)
The Anteroom is a small darkened chamber; used for spiritual initiation by many traditions ranging from Egyptian, Persian, Mayan and Greek religions to Freemasonry and Voodoo.
It resembles a sepulchral cave, furnished with symbols of death and destruction. The candidate is locked inside to meditate on life and death and to confront their own fears and demons. Descending below the earth, one undergoes a symbolical death, by „looking within oneself for the truth“ before resurfacing clear and purified.
This work was inspired by the Initiation Well of ‘Quinta da Regaleira’ at the World Heritage Site of Sintra, Portugal and shot in and around Lisbon.
