Erik Enocksson reimagines the alchemical work – as described by Carl Gustav Jung in “Psychology and Alchemy” – in “Wave and Will”. A single repeating motif, slowly yet relentlessly working its way through the elements; from distorted undercurrents to unperturbed surface. According to Jung, the alchemical process is one of externalisation. A projection of the interior depths of the human mind onto the physical world, resulting in an uncovering of, as well as an encounter with the investigating subject’s own psyche.
