Dart, is a collaboration with South African artist Hanien Conradie. This film documents a ritual that involves writing poetry on the surface of a river. Exploring notions of communal and ancestral pain as well as the power of the landscape to transform and heal, this work weaves together drone footage with Afrikaans and English audio recordings. This work was recently screened at ARC Gallery in Chicago, IL; Circe Gallery in Cape Town, South Africa; Science Cabin, UNIST, in Ulsan, South Korea; and will be displayed on a billboard in NYC during the summer of 2021.
Dart was created as part of The Ephemeral River – Global Nomadic Art Project. Sponsored by the Center for Contemporary Art and The Natural World (CCANW), Science Walden / UNIST, friends at YATOO and the Korean Cultural Centre UK, this 10-day residency was comprised of artists from around the world including Argentina, Finland, South Africa, Germany, UK, and the United States.
