Yoni As Mirror Stage

Susanne Torstensson Van Der Heeg
Sweden 1995

“As a body is to the soul and an oil to the lamp, a yantra is to the divinity.” –Kularnava Tantra (chap v, 86)

Through the mirror you constitute yourself as an object (you observe yourself from the others point of view).

A comment on a certain problem of perception, a problem which tacitly influences our ways of communicating with the world. Languages, images and other forms of representations of reality are not fully transparent tools to relate to the world. In all languages and representations, there is a displacement, or rather, distortion of the world and they are dependent upon the expectations and information we put into play in a communicative situation.
