A Crip Body of Water (pacing is vital for energy flows), Rowena Harris, 2023
Join us for an online screening of Rowena Harris' film, created for the Watershed exhibition.
This film is available to watch for free on 14 - 15 October (no password required).
A Crip Body of Water (pacing is vital for energy flows) has been developed and produced as part of Rowena’s two part residency hosted by MAC and Elan Links.
The work is inspired by the water and energy management system of Elan Valley in relation to life altering fatigue. It is spoken from the position of water, in combined Welsh and English language, and takes inspiration from pacing practices for fatigue and radical habitation of space and time living with fatigue creates. It’s aims are to re-narrativise this landscape for sick, crip and disabled bodies that are often excluded.

Access notes: The work employs closed captions, there is transcript available to download below.
There are two voices and no other sound – female sounding speaks Welsh language, male sounding speaks English language with a lightweight midlands lilt.
