Solstice was a ritual happening which we performed and filmed on the Winter Solstice, 2020, at the Font den Prats, an ancient well in the North East of Ibiza. The ceremony was an imagined winter solstice encounter between two godly deities, ‘Sun’ and ‘Moon’, representing the polar facets of Ibiza’s modern culture (hedonism and extroversion vs. introspection and reflection). This ritual exchange took place at one of Ibiza’s ‘painted wells’, whose chamber features geometric lines said to represent the rays of the sun entering the ‘womb’ of the earth, or the moon goddess Tanit.
