/ INTERDIMENSIONAL PASSAGE
Spiritual entities are powerful allies
As a Belgian from Congolese descent I believe in the world of the spirits, a parallel world / dimension, home to the spirits of my Congolese ancestors. According to Congolese beliefs both worlds are in constant interaction even if the world of the sprits is invisible to us. The spirits of my ancestors live by my side to guide and assist me through life.
A black surface (video, drawing, photo, veil, object, film…) is a doorway / a passage / a transportation module between the world of the living and the world of the spirits. Spiritual entities crossing over to the world of the living can leave visual prints / traces on a black surface. By using black surfaces in my projects, spiritual entities (the spirits of my ancestors, demons, monsters…) can be visible actors in my projects.
