THE POEMS | Videos
INVESTIGATING THE UNCONSCIOUS MIND (2010 – ongoing)
Despite over 150 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 we rationally 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 to the language of the unconscious 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 a meta-series of 115 single images and 10 videos.
Since 2019, I also add videos to the follow up series OTHER POEMS. The work is exhibited as site-specific installations with changing combinations of wallpaper, objects, photographs and video. Each new combination is called a LIMBO.
