The Souls Labyrinth

While looking at Jacques Montel’s photographic works of art, the spectator is brought into mysterious worlds beyond the accustomed field of vision. Without previous warning, you are destined into the middle of nowhere and placed in a dimension between life and death, awaiting to be reborn. Without any guilt you are stranded in the middle of a battlefield where the dominating darkness is fighting for its life against teasing twinkles as well as attacking light cascades, intending to create a breakup and also a transformed reality with completely new qualifications. Initially, in studying some of the pictures, your mind will focus on the remains of emptiness, created as a result of coming out of chaos. The abandoned armchair abiding in deceptive calm calls for reflection in the glimmer of light, trespassing through the window, which is dominated by an out-of-date curtain. The ceiling above you seems doubtful, leaving you in mistrust, you might be located inside a house of cards, which will any time burst. Remaining tracks and signs from the very last tenant cannot be ignored, once a living human being marked its existence on this spot prior to disappearing. Among neglected vegetation in a previously flourishing garden, a decrepit vehicle stands ready. The wheels may fall off at speed, but why bother yourself with such details? The expedition does not follow the ordinary material roads. Take notice by the motivated warning in form of a handprint rising upwards, demanding you to stay in the light and feel increasing confidence in all the given promises of tomorrow. Although, you can’t help but wait impatiently, without surrender to pressure, while mobilizing all the strength and dignity your soul can command. Heading towards the most frightening of dimensions, you are confronted with the old embalmed Pharaoh, who friendly will stretch out and greet you, presenting himself as The Relic. Now all the world´s collected wisdom is offered to you. Knowledge about higher science as well as breathtaking novels will pass your amazed brain cells by. Astonished by the playing morning light you no longer find doubts considering the relevance of your own actions. Awaiting in front of the gate port of Sesame, your thoughts will focus on passed experiences. You must find time to think, embrace the idea of being transformed, allow yourself to create the will power to manifest your life and all its aspects of darkness and light.
