'Against', 2014 (Taken from the 'Translucence' project)2014
The 'Translucence' series serves as a reflection on the fragility of life, investigating Waterman's experience of mourning and loss. The collection of moving image works, 'February', 'Against' and 'Wisdom', interpret three instrumental tracks from Donna McKevitt’s musical score, 'Translucence'
(Warner Classics, 1998), based on Derek Jarman's writing.
'Against' plays with the perception of family memory through a series of repetitive gestures, performed by the artist in response to Mckevitt's score. The desire for attachment, coupled with an unsettling sense of separation is implied as Waterman attempts to embody the projected images she took of her grandmother, just before she died twenty years ago.
