How to Disappear Completely: THE POEMS

Eldagsen’s photomedia work investigates the Unconscious.

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. The Unconscious reveals itself in transition.

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.
