It rained all night. While slipping through the wavering stalks of the lotus, a hovering spectre of sorts emerged from the shores, breathing clouds. Too many worlds and how little time for an everlasting dream. I believe, she could leap in the air and flip her fins, immortalised in a language I’ll never understand. Who put the words in my mouth.
‘Becoming River’ (2023) is a spontaneous engagement with the mythology around a river in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Experimenting with performance and body, I respond to the history of violence, invasion and slow erasure of the local mythologies.
