Primordial Waters Revisited

In partnership with the Scottish Government in Canada and as part of the St Andrew’s Society of Montréal’s virtual ball, Cryptic presents Heather Lander’s Primordial Waters Revisited, with music by Alex Smoke, for Scotland’s Winter Festivals from Mon 30 November – Mon 25 January 2021. 

“Compelling, thoroughly absorbing.” The Quietus

Reflecting the vibrancy and vitality of the Scottish coast, this shimmering video work explores the magical qualities of water, immersing viewers in the evocative ebb and flow of the tides. Revealing a swirling weather-pattern of mists and water accompanied by restorative, ritualistic sounds, the effect is mesmerising and meditative – a reminder to slow down, remember our place in the world, and commemorate the natural laws that bind us to our planet.
