Artistic production in epilepsy

Confinia Psychiatrica. Borderland of Psychiatry. Grenzgebiete Der Psychiatrie. Les Confins De La Psychiatrie
T Matsuhashi


In the epileptic's relation to the world, there is--as a particular way of being--an opposition between two constitutive moments: the world of the dark mass and the world of the light tone of colour as moments of an entirety. This can be seen symbolically in pictures as a contrast between light with an upward trend towards heaven and darkness as an earthy mass with a downward tendency. The two worlds are one at the same time, with diverging trends coexisting in a dynamically flowing organic interrelationship. This is combined with a specific religious atmosphere. From this point of view the attempt is made to gain an understanding of the condition of being ill with epilepsy.
