SPILL 16 – Of Leonardo Da Vinci

Quills, A Black Giant, Deluge

Elaine Mitchener + Davi d Toop + Barry Lewis + Dam Van Huynh (UK)

Absorbed in the visions, memories, prophecies and observations recorded in Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks, a woman dwells on the writing of a life.

As oracle, scholar, acolyte, medium and innocent she voices the spirit of Leonardo, reflecting the nature of life as it moves closer to its end, its teeming presence, the meaning we divine from marks and signs, the flight of the voice, living and dying.

Out of apocalypse comes death-not-death. Everything must end yet nothing is ever finished. The same world is transformed into colour, the sense of itself.
