Valley of Laguz

Jesse Boyd-Reid

23 Sep–10 Oct 2020

Valley of Laguz is Melbourne based artist Jesse Boyd-Reid’s personal exploration of place. This video work explores a bend in a creek that is held sacred in his family mythology. Whilst under COVID-19 lockdown the artist’s family re-stage historical family experiences exploring ritual, belonging and ceremony.

Greek philosopher Heraclitus said that one cannot step into the same river twice, for a river, like all of life, is in a constant state of flux. In this video work the artist’s family return in a ritualised homecoming that is a meditation on the forces of life beyond those of our collective selves.
