The Deep Rivers Say It Slowly is a new video work by Claudia Nicholson that borrows its form from the photographic slideshow. Slipping between still and moving images, the work revisits a collection of photographs mostly taken by the artist while visiting Central and South America for the first time. Nicholson was born in Colombia and adopted and raised in Australia. The Deep Rivers Say It Slowly is part of an ongoing attempt to move through an obfuscated cultural knowledge. Like the movement or pace of a slideshow this process of attuning to and touching a sense of knowing seems to slip away as soon as it feels close. Through returning, enlarging, cropping, and reframing, Nicholson is reaching towards a cultural sensibility and collective memory she is a part of.
