Lexicon Infernali

A nod to the 17th century Dictionnaire Infernal


We always try to give a demonic face to every torment of our existence,
magically finding ourselves
catapulted into infernal landscapes,
inflamed by our madness.

Dark and desolate places that, depending on the nature of damnation,
become images of a fatal isolation.
Sometimes an exhibition is but a ritual to know
and get rid of their own demons.

Mortensen A Tantric Priest cut

From the Dictionnaire Infernal by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy — 1818 —, about demons and their hierarchies, to an encyclopedic lexicon of artists with a shamanic sensibility.
