NOW HERE NOWHERE # 1 ( Impressions from Denmark )

 

 

 

 

Impressions from  Denmark – past  present  and  future

 

 

 

 

 

 

White  cuts,  mentally and lobotomic,
the  golden  sections
through  the  landscape,
man escaping  the  land,
yet  leaving  a  signature,
without  “dress  and  white”,
still a sign’
nature ..

 

“central-Denmark” …
“peripheric-Denmark” …
“provincial-Denmark”
…………………..“Denmark  on  the  edge  ….
……………..……………….… on  the  edge  of  the  abyss …. “

 Chapter  One :

 

on  the  edge …  between   the  belief  of  the  past …   and  the  reality  of  the  present … 
seen  with  the  naked  eye

Maarup  Kirke, Westdenmark

 

 

 

 

 

Traditional christian belief  is  in  free  fall  –  metaphorically as  well  as literally  speaking

NOW  HERE  NOWHERE

 

 

I  go  now  here
I  stand  nowhere

I  want  to  know,
therefore I  go

The  man  who  stand
may  not  understand,
more  or  less  than  eroded  land
through  the  ages

never  born   never  dead
never  never,
ever

like  a  forest,  forever,
with  roots  and  feet  “below”,
growing  up  to  the  sky,
with  Jupiters  rings,
like  a  hat  around  the  head,
a  tree  with  leaves  as  a  crown, 
like  stars,  from Venus  to  Mars,
dressed  like  a  clown,  laughter  of  the  town

( a  dwarflike  earthling,
with prolonged  shadows
below  the  low  horizon  )

A  decisive  moment,
eternity  catched  in  a  glimpse
of  an  eye,
looking  into  the  magic  mirror,
through  ages  and  spaces,
with  words  of  mouth
entrusting  me,  myself  and 
to  “the  greater  south”

I  leave  the  iconic
land of  imagi-
nation,
my  eyes,  smaller  than  most,
are  at  least  constantly  open,
capturing  not  less  than 

a  whole  world

 

… the  one  who  blinks  is  afraid  of  death …

 Højerup  Kirke,  1920,  before the fall

Newspaper, about the fall  16  march  1928

 Transition

 

The newspaper described …. how fishermen, close to the coast, experienced a  huge power leaving the church and the land, dragging a monumental wave as a train behind, across the water towards them, infuriating the boats and made them go berserk, riding like wild horses on the wave from the accident ….  and in addition to that, describing the darkness in the church filled with light from “himlen”*,  through the sudden opening as the alter and choir was snatched away ….   and the way people hurried to the place, as if they were afraid to miss the irreversible accident ….  

It left others with a peculiar and symbolic twist … about how the altar, choir and priest were teared down, and direct access to  “himlen”were given instead …   

The danish philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard  once expressed, that the clergy had build the church on the grave of Jesus, to be sure that he didn´t raise from the dead, returning once again …

 

 the danish word, “himlen”,  means both  “the sky”   and  “heaven” )
