Innergy / Watery Incantations 2021 12’23, 3-channel 4K video, sound 3 Ed. + 2 A.P.

“Innergy / Watery Incantations” tries to understand the different states of water in different regions by focusing on “flow”. In the work that Mimiko completed in a period of two and a half years, the audio recorded on the “water” images that she shot in 7 different regions (Lake Baikal, Bali, Portuguese shores, Venice, Geneva, Swiss Alps, Turkey) deals with the boundaries, depth, memory and change of consciousness through the relationship between human and water. Proceeding in a flow that the artist refers to as “thinking with water”, the video leads the viewer to imagine the movement/consciousness of the water inside their body.

Once upon a time long, long gone,
In a distant past whose very existence is doubtful…
Thereafter in a vague future forthcoming,
Without a single word spoken,
Without a single idea conceived.
A moment of extreme tenderness.
A movement of pure flow.
Ancient cycles
Unknowable timelines
Water flows.
Water’s flow.
Water doesn’t search for its flow.
Water doesn’t doubt it can flow.
Water knows its flow.
Water knows it flows.
Water flows
