Jacobus Capone’s ‘Beating Heart’ is a cinematic exploration of human and environmental fragility in an age of increasing anxiety, denial and isolation.
At the centre of the exhibition is Echo & Abyss (2018), an epic 10-channel video installation plunging audiences into sublime, frozen landscapes, from Sierre in Switzerland to Greenland’s ice sheet. ‘Beating Heart’ also includes a series of works on paper featuring volcanic ash and glacial water and 34 handmade flags confronting one’s mortality with the phrases: ‘You will die. I will die. We will die’.
