A ritualistic space connected to the movement of the Moon cycle. Her transformative energy mirrors the play of dark and light within ourselves. Ritualistic artworks, objects, textures, smells and sounds form an invitation to silence the mind and open ourselves to a ritual. Consciously entering our authentic inner symbolic landscape, which emerges from similar archetypal images we might recognise from our dreams.
The rhythm of the Lunar cycle teaches us the necessity of all shades within duality. Cycles of life, death and rebirth also happen consciously or unconsciously within ourselves. Like her, we are transformative beings in constant motion, with our own narrative within a cycle of natural rhythms.
The scroll shapes are an interpretation of the Japanese kakejiku scrolls which symbolise the natural transitions between the different seasons. Each scroll is made tuned to the energy of a specific phase within the Moon cycle. The artworks invite you to connect to the Lunar cycle, and through that process start to reconnect to your own natural cycles and rhythm.
Reconnecting to natural cycles and rhythms helps us to reconnect to what we feel instead of what we think. Through that proces we start to recognise what our body is telling us. What we really need to feel well, when our actions are in sync with who we are.
