Shore Variations

Research output: Non-textual outputDigital or Visual Products


Shore Variations traces a durational, 3-day intervention of performance artist Julieanna Preston, as she moves with the tide and along the water’s edge at the base of the Chalk Cliffs of Birling Gap, UK. The body relates to the tidal space through an intensely physical, haptic and contemplative dialogue, with the intention of probing what can emerge at the confluence of material bodies. A camera co-inhabits the space, equally travelling towards and away from the cliffs. Alternating between black and white and colour, the video document works to involve us as onlookers in the enquiry.
Shore Variations was shown at Coastal Currents, Hastings (UK); Performing Ecologies, Dunedin (NZ) 2018; VideoDanza BA (ARG) 2019; MeCCSA Brighton (UK) 2020
