Stefanie Koseff: To The Deep

To The Deep | Installation | Press Release

February 2-27, 2013
Opening Reception: Febrary 2nd, 7-9pm

To The Deep: A 3-Channel video installation:

A body falling through space — but it’s not space, it’s water. The viewer is surrounded by three connected screens of a slow-moving underwater realm. This falling body, a woman in black, and a group of women of many shapes and sizes who move through the screens — kicking, cycling, treading water — as a uniform ensemble; a team, or a mob. Their faces break the surface of the water, searching the deep, as the woman in black continues to fall and then drift upward, unable to resist the pull of gravity or the push of water. Slow dissolves blend the stories of the woman and the women together, immersing the viewer in a triptych of the individual vs. the group, the upright vs. the free-falling, lives in rhythm and a life in chaos. Soon, they will occupy the same screen and reveal their true intentions. A dream unfolding below the surface, the video explores what it means to be, in life, under water.
