Under Slottet Bron

Edward Riojas's avatar Edward Riojas

"Under Slottet Bron" considers the links between reality, imagination and folklore. Through layers of transliterated runes, folkloric imagery and vague historicity, the viewer is witness to an ancient untold story about to unfold. There is no agenda in this piece, save the simple enjoyment of discovery within a world of imagination. An elaborate Scandinavian-inspired frame will carry on the theme, with runes transliterating the original poetic phrase, "The tale is told of a sleeping troll under the castle bridge, but his tears that swelled the ocean were all but forgotten."
