(videodocumentation by Dave masu)
It is the sink of a boat who didn’t listen the warning of the other vessels.
The origin of BALEEN are the themes from the book of Jonas (inside the whale) by a priest Jean-Yves Leloup and the pleasure to make anthropomorphisme sounds from object from everyday life. With Jonas we learn fears are the carriers of the no-communication, the no-mouvement between people or between ourselves. The ultime no communication - has result the whale (WAL), as symbol of the jail/ total paralysis.
The second step of this trip is the comprehension of why we don’t want to see our own fears : Paradoxically they define our personality and if we decide to stop be afraid, we change our way of life- maybe we are gonna to lose the love of someone- -we will see our own failure- we will to behave better etc.
The discovering of something who was not communicated, “hidden” is often felt as a betrayal. How we recover from this revelation is connected to our concept of justice/betrayal. We discover that the translation of the reality is actually a choice (WAHL in german) between fear/no fear/acceptance (more we are dependent to the Virtuality*, more our choice are influenced by it).
*The Virtuality (with capital V) is all the information we received from our parents-media- education- culture-myth-trauma. The fears are the scars of this virtuality and make reduction-atrophies- of our reality. We create diversity by seeing the seams of our old stories and by translates them so badly. We de-virtualize us .
