”ANIMA MUNDI”

Being in a time and place, where identification with
the thin membrane of skin, as container of self,
slowly dissolves, as borders between beings evaporate,
the environment disintegrates into a myriad of sentient beings.

PERFORATED REALITIES (2020-2021)

Being in a time and place, where identification with the thin membrane of skin, as container of self, slowly dissolves, as borders between beings evaporate, the environment disintegrates into a myriad of sentient beings.
The work started out as a diary during 2020, an attempt at dialogue, through a daily interAction between the organic surroundings and the fleshy vehicle typing these words.

Gustaf Broms was born in Sweden in 1966. Gustaf’s practice is engaged with the exploration of nature of consciousness, exploring the dualistic gap in the experience of being NATURE (as the biological process of body), and being MIND. In his practice, he started off working photography and installation, but two work in particular led him to work with the more formless processes of performance. In 1991, Broms burned all of his work, and in doing so realized that the intensity of the action and the remaining ash by far outdid anything he had previously made. In 2005, he completed a series of works entitled 5 Faiths for a Brave New World in which he worked with objects that were physically too heavy for the body to move. These two experiences created a longing to explore the formless and led up to the project entitled A Walking Piece made with Trish Littler, in which they spent 18 months walking across Eastern Europe. The result is considered a drawing.
