I See Infinite Distance Between Any Point and Another

New filmwork from the Turner Prize nominated collective is an intimate portrait of poet, painter and philosopher Etel Adnan.

Commissioned as part of RELAY in response to London 2012.
This exhibition ran between 14th April – 27th May 2012.

Central to the film, made largely in her Paris apartment, is Adnan’s reading of extracts from her recently published poem The Sea. Her words invite us to consider our connection with the sea.

This film follows Hydra Decapita (2010), exploring the Atlantic slave trade, and is the second part of a trilogy reflecting on water as a source of political and cultural power.

Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun founded The Otolith Group in 2002. Based in London, The Group explores moving image, sound, text and curatorial practice and it functions as a platform for discussion on contemporary artistic production. The Otolith Group was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2010.
