Bellissimo Thorsson at 1646, Den Haag
26 February – 27 March, 2016
Boekhorstst. 125, The Hague, NL
Bellissimo Thorsson presents new work of Helgi Þórsson: partly furniture design; the so called Domti collection and then the Bellissimo that’s more advanced pottery and concrete sculptures heavily inspired by pan flute music.
In the process and research Helgi Þórsson tried to look into the deep and hidden worlds with the help of mediums and a hypnotist where he found confusing and strange information.
The hypnotist sent him to a pool of psychedelic color bringing a new color pallet to the surface. Then he got more relaxed and focused for the next 24 hours.
The first medium told him the story of his past life as a painter from the Netherlands, he misused the help of models and became a sex addict and a drunk, focusing on technical skills in his paintings – lacking inspiration – he died a lonely man. The advise for is current life was don’t go on the same path – Thorsson has stayed away from models.
The second medium told him that he was working on very old themes, his first thoughts were that he should step into new realms but the medium told him that was not the case but he was an artist in earlier civilizations, in the time of Mu and Atlantis. Therefore bringing to life some ancient long forgotten imagery – the mediums advise was to go into a deep meditation to get connected to his spirit guide. So far this has not been going too well as he drinks too much coffee, but nevertheless watches ancient mystery episodes on youtube.
