Ambika P3 and the Wellcome Trust present UNDER, a multi-screen film installation on the art of freediving, in this immersive work the artist and BAFTA award-winning filmmaker Martina Amati returns to her artistic roots to express her passion for freediving: the act of swimming deep underwater on a single breath of air without artificial aid.
Amati combines her fascination for the water with her art and film background in Under, capturing herself and other freedivers performing beneath the water's surface. Amati pushes her limits in order to hold her breath for longer and discover new 'depths'. With a freediving camera team, she films each underwater performance on a single breath of air. In Under these are projected onto large-scale screens in the vast, subterranean space of Ambika P3, evoking the experience of being suspended in time and space, submerged beneath the surface.
