All My Little Ducks

In the heart of the Dutch countryside, the artist seems intent on drowning himself in a tub of water, regardless of the people who loudly heckle him from across the river and off-screen.

Given the extreme physical challenges he puts himself through, Curran seems to be making a point about the artist's relationship with the outside world: choosing to engage with himself rather than society. His head submerges beneath the water like a wily Narcissus chasing his own reflection.
