Lux Aeterna

Video 2011

[2/3]
[+] zoom
29:00 min

Lux Aeterna is a film monologue of nearly half an hour. The starting point for the work is an utopian dream of power and a desire to change the world. The hero of the film takes a journey inside himself and follows an internal dialogue. Composed of quotes from romantic poetry, writings of madmen and tyrants (Julius Slowacki, Adolf Hitler, Anders Breivik, Thomas Jefferson). The monologue is intertwined with breathtaking views of Norwegian nature, forests, rocks and lakes. Here the artist references romanticism and also totalitarian ideologies (eg. the Nazi symbolic \"Deutscher Wald—German forest\"). The film also refers to the cinema of the Third Reich, in which nature often played a major role. The video is an allegory about the desire to conquer the world, a treatise on political utopia born out of madness.
