TRANSFORMATION & ETERNITY MARBLE ROCKS OF THE AEGEAN SEA
Opening September 23rd 2016 I 7:00pm
September 23rd 2016 - October 7th 2016
Transformation and Eternity
We were strolling on Tinos, the island next to Mykonos, when all of a sudden you, Achim, were dancing on the rocks with your camera in your hand. It felt like the stones were talking, Marmor Rocks!
"I live the life of a rock, I am part of our mother earth, I feel the heart beating on mine" (Prayer of the Hopi Indians)
It seems as if the rocks make the cameraman sound in their colours, their diversity and their images, which their bear within them
It seems as every single one of us receives his or her song and painting, a gift and a secret at the same time, unifying all of us.
Thank you, Achim, for transforming your photography into our own images at the bottom of our souls - because they are forever!
"I relate to the stars, I can speak when you speak to me and I listen when you talk".
Achim, you make us listen to your stones and discover ourselves as a part of the great act of creation.
I am part of the father of this large secret, I have felt sorrow and his wisdom. I have seen his creatures - my siblings, the animals, the birds, the telling waters and winds, the trees and everything else on earth and in the universe.
Carved in stone, thousands of years old and as young as this very moment!
"You may think I am only a rock, sitting calmly on a moist ground"
Sometimes, and especially on this island, we reach this silence when we are resting on the rocks, in the sun, in the wind and on the blue sea
"I am more, I am part of life, I live and I serve those who meet me with respect"
Myths say that there is a symbolic relationship between rocks and souls. According to Prometheus, rocks have preserved the breath of mankind;
Other myths tell that stones beware the homes and the spirit of the Gods.
Orpheus succeeded in melting stones with his singing - what ever!
We owe you gratitude and admiration, my dear Achim, for what you have given to us, to yourself, to each of us on our island, today!
Transformation and eternity,
I am reading a note
Transformation and persistency, this is what I want for you, what we dearly wish for you and your creative future!
