Excluded by the Nature of Things (2002)


Inspired by the writings of Luce Irigaray, this video triptych documents the cycle of a year in a landscape inscribed with place names, holy wells, sacred mountains and traces of a female divine. The moments of realism are enhanced by the presence of sound, disrupted by fragments of narrative, performance and animation. An alternation of tension and letting go, inhale and exhale, the breath of the wind, rain and then stillness.
