Unlimited on Screen - Sailing Out of Grain

While Juan delGado's The Flickering Darkness (Revisited) installation is running at the +Southbank Centre, another work by the artist: Sailing Out of Grain, is being shown part of Unlimited on Screen.

Unlimited on Screen is a programme of films featuring profiles of the Unlimited-commissioned artists. Visitors viewing Unlimited festival - an amazing event featuring work by disabled artists - can witness films from 2014 and 2012 alongside other films made by Unlimited festival artists. The films in the exhibition are captioned and audio described.

Sailing Out of Grain is a collaboration between the London-based Spanish artist Juan delGado and solo yachtswoman Hilary Lister. Together, they have embarked on a journey, which will lead them to explore the inner world of Hilary, her life, dreams and achievements. Through an observational camera, Juan will compose an intimate portrait of this extraordinary, yet vulnerable woman whose body has steadily became paralysed due to a progressive neurological disorder.

 The project will take the artist and the sailor beyond the physical, creating a poetical moving image installation revealing Hilary’s internal, psychological experiences and motivations.
Sailing Out of Grain invites it’s audience to embark on a journey to that significant place that is the sea, a remarkable place which allowed Hilary to reaffirm herself with life.
