A Shipwreck

Sara Pathirane

'A Shipwreck' is an installation that consists of a video projection which reflects from the screen onto a transparent surface on the floor, and a live performance by the artist. The installation may also be presented as a projection without the performance. The work investigates what happens to an image when it is shipwrecked into an unfamiliar place, into a new image outside of its origins, where it does not belong. It deals with the presence of the image that exist in between three places, creating a fracture in time and prologing its own existence towards eternity.
