This video was commissioned for The Mantle of Water by curator Ian Wedde. The exhibition that took water as its theme. Designed as a revisitation of Tear, an earlier performance work from 2001, Two Lines sought to focus on the movement of tears down the skin of the face. The title refers to the two drops of water formed in the unseen eye of the performer. These tears when subject to the force of gravity become lines of water and the extreme close-up nature of the footage suggests this bodily function as both a physical act and an abstract field of form shifting over time.
