How do we wake from a dream?

Tommy Pearson

FilmClosures, 2021

‘Closures’ investigates gestures of awakening and recovery, the flowing into a lilac dawn; a collation of multiple mornings with the waking body and its movements. It reconciles multiple emerging narratives from the immanent body and engages them in a forgiving patience. It questions what we do when we wake, highlights its momentum and value, and provides a space for active reflection. As when we sleep, when we wake, we are briefly vulnerable to ourselves, outside of our own consciousness, hence belonging to something larger and it’s in this space that ‘Closures’ aims to position itself: within a space of curiosity and vulnerability.
