BOAT

looped video installation, May 2018

Cardboard

Commissioned for Normal? Festival of The Brain

A cardboard boat slips quietly into the water. In that moment, its function as a vessel is realised, but at the same time water begins to seep into the material. Through a simple and absurd performative act, Jim Lockey explores loss, grief and the drive to keep going in the face of the inevitable. Where does this drive come from and how do we understand and deal with the loss of those things?
