Archaeology. An infinite commonality is buried in our internal 89 spaces; deeply known feelings and images reside under the land- scapes of myth, dreaming and our attitude towards ‘the other’.

Seduction and horror. What is inside and what is outside?

The animal. What does it mean to be wild? Which spaces, inner and outer does wilderness manifest? What is ‘the call of the wild’, and whose voice does the wilderness call in?
