M. Spinner Sol Niger Dark Night of the Soul

We love to listen to stories told around the campfire, especially when they tell us tales of adventurers. They spirit us away to another place, another time. Quite different are the travelers of mind whose spirits are able to embark on such journeys of their own volition. They call themselves mystics, shamans, or even alchemists. Sol Niger is about a journey to the most remote reaches of the mind. We venture there into the realm of symbols and archetypes. A world that is alien to us. When browsing through the book, words and pictures overlap and intertwine, generating an inseparable unity in our minds. They dispel all other thoughts and focus the reader's attention on what is happening before his eyes. The seemingly disjointed and unfinished narratives leave behind a peculiar and haunting impression that is difficult to fathom. This work is the culmination of 22 years that Marco Spinner refers to as his "dark night of the soul." The artist let himself be guided by his subconscious as he photographed the motifs. The words later poured out across the surface of their own accord. They loosely encrypt what he experienced – in a leap that goes far beyond the bounds of everyday existence.
