A whalebone box found washed up on the shore. Is it an enigmatic object containing a secret? A survivor from a shipwreck? It was given to Ian Sinclair, Kötting’s walking companion on his latest jaunt-themed film. They set out on an expedition to take this box to its place of origin, a beach on the Isle of Harris in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides.
Artist Eden Kötting helps shape the film, and in many ways it’s an ode to her indomitable spirit.
