exhibition project “Sjätte Sinnet” (Sixth Sense), Swedish Church
a Hidden Third Person
For this project I was interested to investigate the symbolism of the dove/pigeon used in the jewish/christian tradition. In many ways the dove can represent the silence and femine aspects of the Holy Spirit. The mother or something that balances the male/female duality. Its not hard to link the symbol to similar gods as the holy Maria and i.e. Isis
The dove as peaceful holy, fluffy inter- or hyper existence comes almost to its ubiquitous hiddenness.
Stereo mix down version (from 4 channels) of installation audio:
If you breed a dove and it borns at one location it will always go back to this location. Is this the same with religion? If you are born into one religio cultural situation how easy is it to not return to its ethics and thinking?
In searching for breeders I found Tibor Barcza, living in Elsöv (Skåne). He breeds a special dove called Jacobin Pigeons and he has continued with this hobby for over 30 years. Tibor is a serious breeder and the difference between his hobby or as a profession is somewhat hard to distinguish.
