Fernanda Branco – “watering – immersions into the cold”
watering – immersions in the cold
We are beings of water, as our first environment is the warm and watery mother’s womb. With birth we experience cold for the first time. During the pandemic, the performer Fernanda Branco immersed in cold water daily, for one year.
watering – immersions in the cold is a film performance where 365 days of entering in cold water is transformed into a meditative testimony, exploring performance and audio visual through poetic, documentary and artistic languages.
watering – immersions in the cold is the first of a series of film performances which are part of the PhD.artistic research Environment embodiment – towards poetic narratives. Verging formats and genres are one of the methods on this research, where performativity is at the core. Branco explores working on the verge of performance, installation, lecture and film; on the verge of poetry, documentary and fiction.
