The research of the farthest limit of reality; Iceland, a land far from our realities. A journey through folk and supernatural tales, the culture of a people taken to its extreme. Discovering surreal scenarios where elves and ghosts are part of the daily chronicle, you find the edge between myth and reality. Being at the ends of the earth, where nature reigns unopposed, everything takes a reverential look; personal limits of thought, and those to whom we are driven by circumstances, find new ways of proliferation, new standards. What doesn’t seem normal and ordinary, is shared and told.
Luca Di Meo was born in Italy and “West Edges” is his thesis, as a part of a process whose primary subject of investigation is the Icelandic population and its relationship with myth and mythology.
