Elsa Salonen: Stories Told by Stones

“I find the question of a consciousness of stones genuinely inspiring, captivating, and provocative!” Elsa Salonen

Elsa Salonen produces colored crystals from the pigments of flowers, draws stellar constellations with finely ground meteorite dust on glass, or distils liquid from plants. The Finnish artist experiments with a wide range of “poetic” materials, reviving lost animistic rituals and magical practices. Her subtle works in the field of tension between installa-tion, painting, and conceptual art combine mysti-cism with science, ancient knowledge with recent findings — supported by a great respect for nature. This volume documents her artistic search for consciousness as the primary source of all physical matter. In a fascinating way, it tells the spiritual story of stones, the oldest inhabitants of our planet and witnesses of its evolutionary history.
