MNEMOSIS

Mnemosis is a photographic series by Andrej Lamut, in which he deliberately moves away from depicting the material reality to unveil vast inner worlds, full of inexplicable, often fictitious images. In the series, the author explores daytime parahypnagogia, an altered state of consciousness between sleep and wakefulness, usually accompanied by flashes of thought, insight or creativity, that are quickly forgotten once the episode has passed. Lamut understands Mnemosis as the embodiment of what remains after a daytime parahypnagogic experience: the visual materialisation of the distant, inaccessible thought in ones’ mind. Photographs from the series do not try to recreate the mental images seen during such episodes, but rather create the atmosphere of experiencing said mental state. They carry no visual traces of time, space or a specific event. The viewer is left with an impression that what is seen on the images is repeating infinitely; a motive captured in a never-ending circle of its own existence. The work was produced in the scope of PARALLEL European Photo Based Platform.
