Our time presents a globalised world, where boundaries and frontiers are blurred and the identity crisis bursts out of the cellars of our minds onto the streets to become the subject of «info-wars» and political games.

India seems often perceived, by the western mind’s eye, as a symbol of a slipping away and unconceivable «other». Culturally unclaimed by Columbus, a meta-continent that hasn’t succumbed to any influences, a fiction, a trick of hypertensive nerves. Sanctus sanctorum, beckoning and enticing, yet unattainable... Asia as a distorted vision, an intricate game of mutually penetrating figures, characters and abstract forms, imprinted in fractal patterns.

The abduction of Helen of Troy by Paris and that of Sita by the demon king Ravana, the relationship between Hanuman and Odysseus, the parallels between Ouranos and indian Varuna; all these mysteries of indo-european ancient myth seduce and cast a spell, like a wily god who transforms into a cloud. One can’t help but immerse and disappear, transcending forever the idea of time, space and the personality of self.
