Où l'océan rencontre l'air - expanded cinema performance at FICFA

  • Centre culturel Aberdeen

Ce travail est une performance qui ré échit sur la réflexion. Le sel, l'eau, la préservation et la distillation explorent l'espace liminal où la mer rencontre le ciel. Lorsque l'horizon est caché dans la brume, la distance s'effondre et se dilate. Le sel, l'eau et la ré exion deviennent des éléments physiques clés dans la présentation de ce travail.
