Synopsis

Whilst on a Rockefeller Foundation residency in Bellagio, Italy the artist meticulously recorded her experience through photography, text and video to create an installation that takes us on a disembodied journey through the labyrinthine gardens and ruins overlooking Lake Como.
The passage of time, light, and people is central to this work where location and landscape become devices to explore enclosure and isolation - both physical and psychological states.

Intersecting paths open out into seemingly impossible locations, mysterious doors set into the rock reveal secret passageways, and as the cicadas call, a sense of languor gives way to obsession and an unravelling of sanity.

In collaboration with Robert Arnold. Available as a single split-screen film or a 2 channel installation.
