Fick en plötslig längtan efter sommaren...
Önskar dig en kreativ helg
|"Ocean Without a Shore is about the presence of the dead in our lives.|
The three stone altars in the church of San Gallo become portals for
the passage of the dead to and fromour world.
Presented as a series of encounters at the intersection between
life and death,the video sequence documents a succession of
individuals slowly approaching out of darkness and moving
into the light. Each person must then break through an invisible
threshold of water and light in order to pass into the physical world.
Once incarnate however, all beings realise that their presence is
finite and so they must eventually turn away from material
existence to return from where they came.The cycle repeats without end.
