-------------------------------------------

There is a hole in this world.
Behind your eyes, behind closed doors.
The whale of time
with one eye and a million mouths
speaks:
"I am the Abyss.
I am your truth.
I am the wishing well.
Your promise of reality."
All who hear it realize
to draw strength from within.
To know, to dare, to will and to keep secret.
The world has come to a stop.
Underneath it all, love breaks free.
When Civilization ends,
the body will remain.


The Abyss opens up perspectives on strength and struggle. The space at Weld will showcase sculptures, images and video works that aim to create turbulence and discord in the viewer. Sandwiched between Stockholm Fashion Week and the general elections, the Abyss presents a turning point (not unlike the dramatic concept of the abyss) and a visual representation of otherworldly strength rising against the muted despair of today’s political climate.
