Even Lovers Drown 2015Performance installation, video, iPads, animation, poetry, sound
A mermaid found a swimming lad,Picked him up for her own,Pressed her body to his body,Laughed; and plunging downForgot in cruel happinessThat even lovers drown.In collaboration with Sorina Reiber
You mustn't swim till you're six weeks old,
Or your head will be sunk by your heels;
And summer gales and Killer Whales
Are bad for baby seals.
Are bad for baby seals, dear rat,
As bad as bad can be;
But splash and grow strong,
And you can't be wrong,
Child of the Open Sea!
