“A long time ago, when I was still a teenager, I snuck into the Oracle of Delphi at night with two friends, to sleep in the open air on the ancient stones. The next morning, my friends found out that they had dreamt the same images: an excessive bacchanalian procession of our ancestors. I, on the other hand, could not remember anything... Maybe this is why I, for decades, have been searching for the signs and the essence of our future in the intoxication of images and sounds – the ones I create myself and the ones that surround us and affect us.”
For Bildrausch – Filmfest Basel, Peter Mettler has crafted a new installation, entitled The Oracle, that channels his search for true and profound images. This work will be projected onto the ceiling of Stadtkino Basel for the next year, inviting viewers to enjoy a sensorial and pictorial ecstasy.
