A Place to wash the Heart Chapter1

 
MONIKA BIELSKYTE IS BASED IN PARIS. SHE USUALLY SPENDS 4 TO 6 MONTHS A YEAR TRAVELLING TO SHOOT HER PROJECTS, THUS INCORPORATING THE VERY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF TRAVEL INTO HER DREAMLIKE IMAGES THAT TELL STORIES OF PASSING TIME

ONLY IT SOMETIMES TROUBLED HIM THAT HE COULD NOT WALK ON HIS HEAD. WHOEVER WALKS ON HIS HEAD, LADIES & GENTLEMEN, WHOEVER WALKS ON HIS HEAD HAS HEAVEN AS AN ABYSS BENEATH HIM --PAUL CELAN

A PLACE TO WASH THE HEART IS WORK-IN-PROCESS, IT HAS 5 CHAPTERS THAT ARE CONNECTED TOGETHER BUT CAN ALSO BE READ SEPARATELY. CHAPTER 1 HAS ALREADY BEEN FINISHED & EDITED INTO A VIDEO, WITH THE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK BY KAMOHMIN & RAGNAR. THE PROJECT WAS BORN OF THE NEED TO CONNECT & COMMUNICATE FEELINGS THAT ARE SO HARD TO EXPRESS WITH WORDS, HERE INTIMATE STORIES MINGLE WITH HISTORY & BECOME ONE - A SUBJECTIVE PATTERN OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCES, OF A NEED TO UNDERSTAND, TO BELONG, TO SHARE; A TISSUE OF HUMAN EFFORT, & OF ALL OF ITS FAILURE; HISTORY BECOMES A GEOGRAPHY OF DESIRE, STORIES BECOME PLACES, PLACES BECOME STORIES LOSS & VIOLENCE, MEMORY WITHOUT RECOLLECTIONS.

I WISH I COULD CREATE SOMETHING OF IT THAT WOULD MAKE ONE FEEL LIKE WALKING A TIGHTROPE ABOVE THE ABYSS, EVERY MOMENT LIKE THE END OF THE WORLD

I WISH I COULD CREATE OF IT SOMETHING DEVOID EVERYDAY HUMAN TRIFLES & VANITY, SOMETHING AS REAL AS A DREAM SEEMS TO BE THE FIRST MOMENTS OF WAKING UP
