A cap, like water, transparent, fluid yet with definite body, 2017

 

A cap, like water, transparent, fluid yet with definite body is a new film work and body of research exploring relationships between landscape, women’s writing, jellyfish, psychological experience, retreat and resistance. The project uses as its starting point, the work of female Modernist poet, H.D , and her experiences of psychic breakdown/breakthrough, retreat and sexual awakening on the Isles of Scilly in the early 20th Century.

 

In 1919, after a period of severe trauma in her life , H.D withdrew to the Isles of Scilly with her 3-month-old daughter Perdita and her lover Bryher. During this time of retreat, she had what she referred to as her ‘jelly-fish experience’ or the over-mind: an awakening or transformation; a coming together of erotic body and mind, rational and irrational thought.

 

The project is supported by the Peninsula Arts Film Award and SWFTA - the South West Film & T.V Archive
