Once upon a time long ago and far away: Shutting down in isolation
Words by Fiona Davies
June 8, 2020
This work is a short succinct video. It is a fairy tale read to the rhythm of this time and space focusing on the isolating impact of the pandemic. This work references The Seventh Seal by Ingmar Bergman. It is a remaking. In this remaking, the script of a fairy tale is set within the liminal spaces of the transition from home to hospital and the transition from life to death. We also experience this state of transition. We also experience the liminal internal and external spaces of waiting and fail to see or unsee the figure of Death.
