Jarvis, Beatrice [Artist] (2018) Le deasghnatha / Don Chuardah Naofa Seo = In this sacred search : as cormorant and as barnacle. (film). single channel video.


Journeying across the climbs of Donegal in search of the holy fountain, a ritual, a search, a quest for the source. This short film details a ritual endurance dance, seeking to learn the colour blue, measure a wave, and learn from a cormorant. How can water teach us about movement, how can watching the breath of waves develop a fluidity in our blood and bones that has stagnated and paused. Drawing from core principles of PaR within ecopsychology, working alone over a durational period this new film work develops the concept of learning and receiving directly from water as stimulus and the body as reactant. How can the body embody the quality of the sea and take such vocabulary to the highest point of the mountain? How can we carry the sea within each step? Traversing terrain and disciplines, between dance, long distance walking, personal pilgrimage and environmental reactionary practice; this film work documents the sensitive and poignant synergy between water and the body.
