INVESTIGATING THE UNCONSCIOUS MIND (2010 -2017)
After 150 years of psychology, the Unconscious remains as vague and powerful as the Gods it has emancipated itself from. Being a reservoir of our past experiences, it stores urges and feelings we have rationally no access to. Nevertheless, images have the power to open these doors, trigger emotions and unlock memories.
Using archetypes, dreams and symbolic acts, Eldagsen’s work speaks the language of the Unconscious and communicates with the viewer on this unusual level. His visual poetry takes you somewhere between the sublime and the uncanny, where the attributes of photography, painting, theatre and film are melting into one.
THE POEMS is a meta-series of 115 single images and 10 videos. Presenting this work as a site-specific installations, I use changing combinations of wallpaper, objects, photographs and video. Each new combination is called LIMBO.
