Returning to Ginnungagap
• on cracks, gaps and voids and where they might lead us
The crack is such a powerful image. We tread carefully on eggshells so as not to crack each other’s shells or indeed our own. But where would it take us if we dared to let the surface crack and let ourselves fall? How does a terrifying open space change into a welcoming one, into something benign?
Creation myths, such as the Nordic myth with its Gap of Ginnunga and the Orphic creation myth give us some indications, likewise James Hillman, the art of Anish Kapoor and not least our own dreams and visions.
