The Erotic Mirror is a Blindfolded Sundial.
Creatures veil the world.

In the celluloid mind a memory is cut.

Johnny Welch 2018, Super 8 > HD Video, black & white, sound
Exploiting Aleister Crowley’s Liber 777 as structuring device;
each image in the film combines to form a sigil.
The performers evoke Chthonian rhythms to magnify intent.
The music drives a hypnotic path through suspension of the mind
into the realm of the senses.
The film lives in fluxus. The first version of the film was performed live with Halv Drøm as a double-channel projection on Super 8. The performance included several painted loops consisting of nail polish, bodily fluids, charcoal, chalk and emulsion scratches.
In the second version, the film material was digitised to accompany a 31 minute mix of Halv Drøm’s tracks. The format was expanded to include a third channel in the background. Each channel loops at a different point in time, resulting in various synchronicities both in image and sound.
Music: Halv Drøm
Performers: Valentin Tszin, Olyana Skrjabina, Helena A. Tschakaloff, Saxon Jorgenson
Makeup (Helena): Sasha Noir Noir
Styling (Helena): Thea B. Adora
