Agnus Dei from
Mass for the Endangered
composer, Sarah Kirkland Snider
lyrics, Nathanial Bellows
videoart, Deborah Johnson
"Breathtaking beauty." --The New Yorker"
A prayer for endangered wildlife and their imperiled
environments...elegiac and affecting." --Wall Street Journal
Intended as a performance art visual poem in response to the covid lockdown, UK-based artist Marty St. James, a pioneer in this genre, created InBetween World in 2022. However, the work has expanded meanings, as it inhabits and intertwines human form and nature stretched and overtaken with strange form and mind alterations—it is a metaphor of human interdependence in a world grappling with crises of wars, social injustice, and climate change.
