The Shore and I are Lovers

Michelina Williamson

2004, 03:00 minutes, Colour, English


The serene yet passionate video, The Shore and I are Lovers, reflects on the philosophy of love and the path of the heart. While the methodical movement of water is gently interrupted by the passage of time, marked by subtle changes in light, the allegorical verse of Kahlil Gibran's Songs of the Wave describes the perplexities of lovers. Water is a recurring element in Williamson's work, used primarily for its symbolic properties. In this particular video, water represents love, life and the soul.
