Bodies of Water video included in The Walking Encyclopaedia exhibition, AirSpace Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent, UK, February 7- March 15, 2014
Bodies of Water, a new video work, is included in the survey exhibition The Walking Encyclopaedia, which seeks to present and highlight the wide and eclectic variety of arts practices which use the walk as a cultural activity. AirSpace Gallery has timed the exhibit to coincide with the Richard Long Exhibition at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery (part of the Tate’s Artist Rooms On Tour programme).
Bodies of Water combines the fluidity of life drawing with video footage of urban reflections in water. It intertwines narratives of human journeys with those of travelling waters in a vivid expression of colour, energy, and motion. Animated figures of rippling water portray an ongoing flow of humanity, a testament to both constant change and continued endurance. A wide range of emotion is conveyed by the fluctuating character of the water, and through the posture and movements of the individuals.
