Anne Wilson Conversation

Opening: Tuesday 14 August, 6-8pm Dates: 14 August-1 September 2007

Wilson’s haunting video installation is about desire: a desire to communicate that is older than language
itself. Shot underwater, the performance is both beautiful and dangerous. The body takes on a deathly
serenity as the spoken words become bubbles that float upwards like silent prayers. But staying submerged is an act of endurance as each utterance bleeds precious air from the performer’s lungs. Communication comes at a cost and words are no sooner articulated than they become shimmering ghosts beyond our comprehension.
