Part of a PYROCLAST, an ongoing metamorphosis and healing experience rooted half in reality, half in the unseen. Interested in how we project our own inner world, fears, inner beauty, longings on our environment, I filmed the forest right in front of my home during a thunderstorm. We encounter important parts of ourselves when stay still and contemplate, listen carefully. Trees seem ready to swallow us or offer a refuge, branches turning into arms, leafy agitated tentacles. Suggested to be played on loop.
French polymathic artist and poet of Polish origins born in 1982, Eva Wollenberg lives and works in the middle of the woods, in the mountains of East of France. She started to share her poetic ecosystem (photo, video, writing, music, mixed-media artworks) with the public in 2010, after working as a creative recluse 12 years long. Digging into the mine of existentialism, chtonian mysteries, the uncanny and the unseen, her focus is on the exploration of the inner arena, emotional and psychological self-discovery. Deeply attuned to nature, she considers art an alchemical process, a way to uncover and free the true Self, integrate Shadow elements into the personality.
