"No Self Can Tell: Voyages in Trans-Personal Trauma" (last edited: 2020)

Elisabeth Laasonen Belgrano, Mark Douglas Edmund Price

About this exposition

“This project is an artistic/philosophical exploration of Ornamenting as an over-spilling, over-abundance and over-vocalization; it begins modestly, with a desire to investigate the relation between two simple notes and a space-in-between. This simple beginning is the base from which to study the 'between-worlds' of what is known and unknown, sensed and non-sensed, between reason and imagination, between self and other. It’s a bold initiative for its materialist-mysticism of the alchemists, or a 'spirituality' based in the rawest forms of empiricism. In one absolutely necessary sense, we do not know what we are doing, but we are taking the most serious risks in our attempts to 'recover' and 're-value' our personal experiences of exile and trauma.”
