Borrowing its title from Led Zeppelin’s homonymous track, All of My Love is a sound-choreographic construction that transpires through the recollection of experiences, texts, objects, craft practices, and manual operations. A shifting landscape in which nothing remains soundless. An invitation to a sensory intense experience that gropes the edges of loss. A choreographic composition of diverse memories and images. A letter of love, remembrance, and tribute to all those that are not with us anymore.
Seeking for motives and emotion, the artist begins with a question: “What would a last dance sound like if there was no tomorrow”? To try a first answer, she chooses to restore memories through the diversion of dissimilar elements and their sonic re-composition. Extracts of favorite movies, lyrics of beloved songs, voices of loved ones, excerpts from amateur family Super8 films, sounds made of agricultural tools and household appliances, photographs, and bodily memories, generate a ritualistic circumstance through which modes of being are challenged.
All of My Love escapes linearity, inspiring temporal discontinuities and calling into question duality by blurring the boundaries of beginning and end. It discloses personal origins, traumas, and fantasies in an effort to reconcile with the idea of death. It captures memories and transmutes them into a locus of catharsis, inviting the spectator to join a paradoxical reminiscence. It chases a feather in the wind. All of My Love is a kinetic and sonic cry for all that is not here, for all that is ending, for all that exists and transforms, for all that is always there.
