Contained in a sort of series of stages created through the camera and a woman who tries to fit in them, Julieta Anaut acts as a material for her own creation, offering her body to the character who was born from a mermaid, expelled from her habitat, thrown at her fate and forced to wander as a member of two worlds.
Are we where we wanted to be? Have we broken the magical chain of events that used to leave us exactly there? Sea Exile is a present portrait of that concrete feeling that springs up from the skin and attempts a journey from the imposed to the natural, from “evolution” to the primal.
