Water Witching, 2018




HD video. 07:06. 2018. Commissioned by The Hessel Museum of Art, An unbound know in the wind, Curator Alison Karasyk, CCS Bard. WATER WITCHING is a metaphysical short film about conjuring the strength to weather chaos. Interrelating concerns of climate, weather, gender, and destruction, WATER WITCHING explores how agency may be conjured as a kind of internal resource via divination amidst political adversity. Woven from archival footage, glitch frequencies, and the artist’s performative gestures, the work's sound is composed from field recordings of water, wind, machines, animals, and human protest to wield a dream that may cut across narratives of linearity. Commissioned for AN UNBOUND KNOT IN THE WIND, CCS Bard - Hessel Museum, Curator Alison Karasyk. Film, performance, and original sound score by the artist.
