BAPTISM

189546397

"Born inside of her amniotic sack, she thinks one day she will drown. Floating weightless in water, imagining she’s within the comforts of the womb. Laura’s video work explores cleansing of the soul through a baptismal ritual, freeing herself from an idea of sin. Thinking about purity, ritual, cleansing and washing of the body she explores the space between inside and outside, between me and you, between birth and death."

For continuous loop.
