Cry Me a Waterfall (Close My Eyes I Dream of You in Slow-mo)

Cry Me a Waterfall (Close My Eyes I Dream of You in Slow-mo)

Jala Wahid

Ellipsis Prints

Jala Wahid’s print is based on a still from her film ‘Cry Me a Waterfall’. Taking the form of an extended music video, the work includes a performance by Amal Saeed Kurda of ‘Cry Me A Waterfall’, a newly composed English language love song written to Bekhal waterfall in Kurdistan. The work explores the problematic feelings of nationalism and wanting to claim a land that has been denied Kurds, through the desire to either conquer or have communion with it. It considers the fluid and fictive space that homeland can occupy beyond geographical definitions of statehood and the symbiosis of identity as synonymous with stateless land.

The mission of Ellipsis Prints is to provide support and encouragement to women and non-binary artists. An 'ellipsis' is the '... symbol. In this context it represents those genders frequently forgotten and excluded by the mainstream art world. Ellipsis Prints works with some of the most talented contemporary women and non-binary artists in the UK.

We fund their training in printmaking and the production of their prints as well as encouraging the development of their careers through visibility, sales and support. Ellipsis Prints works exclusively with women and non- binary artists in order to address the gender imbalance still prevalent in the contemporary art world.
