I Am Weather
5mins 58secs / 2019 / Triptych version of the 360 degree Compass Me.
A woman’s body shifts and vibrates through water in a process of doing and undoing. The elemental force of water moves between torrent, boiling rage and steam. Performer Clare Whistler appears held in a slackened gravity that allows shifts between existing and becoming. The film shivers with aversion, uncertainty and moves forward with love.
Filmed in The Library of Water in Stykkisholmur, Iceland. The building overlooks the ocean and the town, and houses 24 glass columns containing water collected from the major glaciers around Iceland.
