1.
atravesso o portal mítico
2.
e embriagado pelo reflexo
3.
Adormeci levemente encostado a um carvalho grande e imponente com braços de movimentos dinâmicos, quais trovões ligados ao céu. Estava num bosque imenso, cheio de clareiras e gigantes trepadeiras que lentamente desejavam a morte das árvores mais jovens. Avistavam-se alamedas quase sobrenaturais, qual horizonte aquífero que se funde com o Sol. Acordei estremunhado, assaltado pela imagem de uma estranha mulher, que parecia possuir um turbante de folhas pontiagudas de limoeiro. Os seus odores eram como o cheiro a orvalho que se entranha na casca dos diospireiros. Ao olhar com atenção, vi que havia raízes em seus pés e asas que libertavam vapor. Os seus olhos fulgurantes cintilavam com a oscilação da luz, fruto do movimento das nuvens durante a aurora. Os seus seios eram fartos, volumosos cogumelos e o seu ventre era como o interior de uma abóbada coberta de arabescos rubros, que palpitavam sem cessar. De súbito o seu corpo começou a libertar raízes que me entrelaçaram. Passei a estar realmente integrado naquela paisagem.

Estou no coração da floresta, onde as raízes das árvores entrelaçadas crescem em abundância, e formam abrigos grandes e antigas cúpulas, e onde as lianas cobrem o céu em tons verdes fosforescentes. Gotas de água cristalinas e esparsas, penetrando a camada espessa de vegetação, caem como por magia sobre o meu corpo diáfano, causando a ilusão de uma súbita frescura essencial naquele ambiente de ar denso e humidade ardente, que provoca febres avassaladoras. Deambulo sem saber se é de dia ou de noite, nesta masmorra coberta de seres fantasmagóricos e criaturas monstruosas, compostas por membros misturados de animais selvagens e Homens. Nesta desoladora treva, que parece interminável, pressinto uma presença luminosa que flutua sobre os corpos das aberrações e, quando esta me ousou tocar, deu-se uma enorme explosão de luz, como se tivesse engolido uma estrela cadente e me tivesse transformado na luz de um farol que alcançava universos longínquos.

qual espectro

da zona perdida no tempo

imenso abismo do reino submerso

about

“εἴδωλον” establishes a parallel between classical antiquity and contemporaneity by creating a poetic dialogue with various myths, stories speaking about fabulous creatures, humans and gods. It celebrates the beauty of metamorphosis and hybridism, which goes from the human being to the vegetal and animal life but carries the weight of that transition process and its consequences in the bodies of the “εἴδωλον” characters. The latent Romanticism that goes together with the music is immense, within a context in which the subject's sexual impulses, of death and of closing inside the subject's self, take hold of the body and are skin-tight, being music the means through which it is possible to communicate the unconscious and bring to the surface all this inner rampaging. Towards the exoticism of the female body and the bliss granted by these enchanting and enigmatic characters, we welcome the detailed representations that explode into sensuality and promote a state of constant and involuntary ecstasy or narcosis. We cling to a perennial, pure and living energy, to the beauty of enlightenment and concurrently meet these elements with what is sick, frightening and deceiving, a provocation that aims to penetrate the depths of our being and the rubble of a distant submerged past.
