FROM WATER is an immersive video installation that invites the public to contemplate water from inside Stephen Turner's Exbury Egg as part of his project 'Natura Prima’ Thamesmead - Venice 2019-21.
Before the egg there is water. We all come from water and the video installation makes a link between Thamesmead, Tello/Girsu (Iraq), Treviso (Italy), and Santos (Brazil) - where Dani Tagen was born. These four places have a very close connection with the artist: they are all places she has lived - even if temporally. They all have an intrinsic connection with water and also represent milestones in her life.
FROM WATER emphasises the connections we, as human beings, have with one another and water.
The video installation moving images and soundscapes portray water movements, tides and wave ripples from Thamesmead waters.
FROM WATER is a place of wonder. Where one goes inside to lose track of time and reconnect with nature.
