What you Love Too much to lose (2021) is a film by Ella Frost (editing), Soha Salem (research) and Aisha Mirza (sound design) built as a collage to explore ecological grief with a certain lightness, through the lens of a shark.
Personal and found footage questions how it feels to live through the mass extinction we are facing, giving a voice to ecological anxiety in a sad and sexy meditative atmosphere. The screening is followed by a craft and writing workshop to reflect on our relationship with sharks on a personal and human level.
Presented by RCA MA Curating Contemporary Art Postgraduate Projects 2022 in partnership with Gasworks, Between the Deep Blue responds to Juha Pekka Mathias Laakkonen's exhibition, Buoyancy. Between the Deep Blue is an invitation to question how we can transform past traumatic histories into new ways of living and healing through a series of ocean-linked workshops and events held in an immersive space.
