How to Disappear Completely: THE POEMS

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 rationally have 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, Boris Eldagsen’s work investigates the unconscious, by speaking its language. It attempts to communicate 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 melt into one.
