Pippa Lighfoot writes: There is something primordial about water and it unsettles the senses. This is a work born during my 2019 Venice residency, inspired by La Serenissima...the magical city floating in a lagoon. It is a treasured Venetian belief that the glass-green waters of her canals never leave Venice, that they do not flow into the sea but continually circulate around the canals, carrying all her music and her songs, her secrets and her lovers stories, around and around for eternity.
