Ave Maria

Ho Tam

2000, 07:20 minutes, colour, music


Inspired by the choral music recorded during the worship of the Black Virgin at Montaserrat, Spain, Ave Maria explores and expands the universal meaning of maternal love. Shot entirely in the New York City subway, the video is a visual metaphor of passages one travels through in an ever changing world.
