Bent Sørensen The Bells of Vineta (1990)
Bent Sørensen THE BELLS OF VINETA

The title THE BELLS OF VINETA refers to the journey through Sweden in Selma Lagerlöf’s book The Wonderful Adventures of Nils Holgersen, in which Vineta is the city under a curse. Situated off the Gotland cost, Vineta only appears from the water once every hundred years and then sinks into the sea again. However, my work does not relate programmatically to the myth; it is simply the expression of associations with ringing bells sinking into the sea. a sense of "pastness" prevails in and beyond this piece.
