The rememorization of archaic rituals to the effect of subconscious
archetypal imaging and the human being’s (re)integration in the
cyclicality of the universal temporal rhythm by carrying on some actions
deployed throughout several years(an attempt to recreate the anthropocosmic
consciousness and to participate in the Cosmos rhythms).
The solar wheel (Cucuteni,
Iasi, august 2003)
The actions of the ego’s reinvestment with solar powers, of rediscovering
the human being solarity.
The construction of the solar wheel, as substitute of the heavenly body
in which the circle and the cross join their meanings.
The cross – symbol of the center and of the power lines leaving
therefrom, of the cosmos totality and of the human being (as microcosmos);
symbol of life and death, of their unity and alternation.
The circle – symbol of perfection, homogeneity, immutable and
eternal motion, with no beginning or end, of temporal cyclicality.
Repetition of a solar archaic cult by lighting and rolling the fire
wheel on a hill slope, miming the sun apparent course on the celestial
dome. The symbolic restoration of the heavenly body attributes and potentiality
as source of life and death, of resurrection, of everlasting life return
by passing through temporary death.
The action of blending, identification, attribution of the Sun features
by overlapping the human shadow (the devitalized double, the embodiment
of the soul split by the body) over the carbonized remaining of the
The archaic human being makes the most of himself in cosmic terms living
in an ”open” world having at the same time an existence
“open” to the world. Periodically, on high days, we have
the opportunity to mimetically replay the plenitude to operate an imaginary
return to perfection, attempting the symbolic restoration of that something
which reality keeps on frustrating us of.
