THE OTOLITH GROUP - I See Infinite Distance Between Any Point and Another14. Apr - 27. May 12 / ended Lighthouse Brighton
The Sea becomes a metaphor for the spirit in this powerful new moving image installation
Turner Prize nominated artists, The Otolith Group, poetically explore the sea as a site of myth, history and socio-political power in a new immersive exhibition commissioned especially for Brighton Festival.
I See Infinite Distance Between Any Point and Another is a poetic and poignant new work centred on the renowned Lebanese-American poet, painter and philosopher, Etel Adnan, one of the most important contemporary figures in Middle Eastern literature. Her highly influential writings, in French, English and Arabic have been read around the world.
The Otolith Group‘s poignant and poetic new film is made largely in Adnan’s Paris apartment, and centres on a reading of extracts from her recently published poems. The sound of Adnan’s voice, and the quiet but ever present ambient noise in her apartment, create a film with a powerful, meditative atmosphere.
This exhibition is taking place at Fabrica gallery: 40 Duke street, Brighton, BN1 1AG
