Ann and Vicky are presenting a photographic image for A Dangerous Field entitled Nostos (homecoming). Through the use of an ephemeral performative gesture, the photograph becomes documentation, but also an illusion of the walk that was once taken together.
AV Collaborations developed in 2013. They have worked in locations around the UK, including The Gower Peninsula in Wales, North Yorkshire and Oxfordshire. The artworks are a series of videos and photographs during a number of residencies.
'Continuum' was a short film created for Liquidscapes festival, #artdotearth
Ann Rapstoff and Vicky Vergou are interdisciplinary artists who have their own practice as well as an interest in collaborating. They have worked together on various artists residencies, films and performances mainly in response to the land. Their philosophy is concerned with the continuum of life and the interconnection with the planet.
Vicky has a background in visual arts, particularly video, sound, drawing, and installation. Ann’s background is in performance, socially engaged work, interventions, writing, installation and stitch.
Continuum is a collaborative video work and part of an ongoing exploration of the elemental nature of water; its rhythms and circulations. They have been both studying water intimately for over a decade discovering its magicalalwayes changing substance. This film is a contemplation, which weaves a journey of a river from its source beneath the earth as it flows to the sea and its return, its passage of time reminding us of life death and change.
The film has been shown at Liquidscapes, an international conference at Dartington Hall in Devon in June 2018 part of #artdotearth.
