EXCERPTS FROM “DISTANT LIGHTS”
The series Distant Lights, inspired by Book of Disquiet, Fernando Pessoa’s “factless biography”, and W. G. Sebald’s Rings of Saturn, is an attempt to create an account of spiritual travel around Baltic melancholic countryside. This is an homage to Province and its chthonic, deeply mysterious spirit.
Egor Buimister is Latvian emerging artist and writer, who has been previously published in SE5 Magazine, BLOOME and The Epiphany and exhibited his art in Latvia and the United Kingdom. Egor’s works focus on the problems of fading memory, imaginary spaces and search for Divine presence in the the most melancholic sides of life.
