In ebbs and flows, twists and ripples, this piece explores the idea of water, within our own bodies, in coursing motion and in containment, from source to sea.
Through movement in space, the body mirrors the organic movements of nature, distilling the natural formlessness of water into motion; the body as vessel. In this work, the body acts as conduit for all that water is to us and around us, and this work is a visual conversation between director and performer.
Filmed on locations across London, the artist & performer’s shared relationship to the rugged landscapes & rich histories of Eastern Europe colours this conversation, alongside a soundscape by Pablo Drexler featuring field recordings of the ocean in Northern Spain.
VESI is a collaboration between KAMIENSKI. and Avely Vain, who has directed and filmed this piece. You can check out her work here.
VESI has been presented as part of Unsigned exhibition at BBH Blacksheep, London Sep 2019.
