Seduction explores the spatiality and materiality of a submerged body in relation to the surrounding water. Dividing the screen into a moving triptych of images, Locher challenges the stasis of the architecturally constructed world outside the swimming pool by presenting the image of figures filtered through liquid. The figures are ephemeral, their movements fleeting and distorted by a translucent swell of water. Locher’s film begins with what appear as clothed individuals twisting and turning, negotiating the water like synchronised swimmers. The figures emerge and metamorphose as though sea creatures captured and distorted by the enveloping membrane of water.
