The Sibylline Dairy

The Sibylline Dairy

For a while now, the interpretation of “meaning” in my works became an important aspect of my practice. When confronting this idea with an archive of images I had collected over the years, but which had no true purpose, I started arranging and interpreting meaning in them just like the sybils, or ancient oracles, would have done.

Two notable sources left behind by the sybils were the Sibylline Books and the Sibylline Oracles.

The series “Sibylline Dairy” mirrors the characteristics of these books: the images, marks and scribbles form chaotic connections that cannot be reduced to a single meaning, but have to be interpreted each time, and each time the interpretation can shift.
