Description:
Videodocumentation of a performance under water, September 2017, Chiessi, Italy Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/238378135 January 10th, 1972. The cargo vessel "Elviscott", 499 tons, 65 meters length, is on her way from Naples to Marseille. During a heavy winter storm she hits the Ogliera cliffs near Elba, Italy, and sinks. Now, so many years later, the huge wreck has become a paradise for submarine life. A great diversity of plants cover the entire hull and swarms of small fishes are drifting around. The floating text is a poetic call to the spirit of the broken ship. A memory of a different existence long time ago. I formed you and found rightness in your light, until your pain alarmed me: you are alive. Rain tumbled onto my hands, wind rocked my body. You are other. Poem by Triin Soomets, Estonia
