Beneath Secrets, there lies mythology
Beneath mythology lies motive
Beneath motive lies the truth
This series attempts to recognise and re create visual symbols and metaphors through an investigation into Ethiopian’s faith in God and/or the unknowable. Beneath Secrets ventures to places inspired by dreams and celestial presences, in order to comprehend the spiritual. The series is a collection of found and imagined systems of signs filtered through personal myth and memory. The ever-present impossibility of representing the “authentic” Ethiopia, or presenting a natural truth about humanity is held tentatively in the air, more as a question than concluding anything didactic. How we see becomes as important as what we see.
