She was afraid to call it love (she called it swimming)

with Núria G. Gabriel.

“She was afraid to call it love (she called it swimming)” is our attempt to remember those images that we have never seen, to feel again those feelings that we haven’t known yet. With this purpose we use excerpts from Anne Charlotte Roberton’s “Five Year Diary”, a project on film. We appropriate her memories, her search of that one who has gone away in the place where her body was buried: the garden. The voice in the video reads a collection of excerpts taken from different books and reordenated to compose a poetry piece about the appropriation of the memories (expressed both in images and literary text) from those who where here in the past and that we will never personally meet because we live in different times and spaces.
