These Waters Have Stories To Tell

Julia Davis Undercurrent, 2017 Video, endless loop, stereo sound Artist: Julia Davis Camera: Tom Waugh Drone operator: Rian Taylor Editor: Blue Lucine, Julia Davis Sound: Julia Davis, Blue Lucine


These Waters Have Stories To Tell presents work from six international artists and is a reflection of their experience and relationship with oceanic waters. The work of Shiraz Bayjoo, Julia Davis and Sylvia Safdie originates from the shorelines of Tasmania, Cypress, and Mauritius, places that have been colonized, over fished and polluted. Jaanika Peerna, Alexander Duncan and artist-science collaborators Christian Sardet and The Macronauts explore oceanic bodies and beings as both phenomenon and habitat, to encourage us to witness the two interacting.
The exhibition explores how oceans, their ecosystems and climates are affected by our actions.

Curated by Celina Jeffrey
An Ephemeral Coast exhibition

Ephemeral Coast links coastal spaces internationally, including Wales, Mauritius, the USA, Mexico and Canada. Working with an array of artists, climate change scientists and thinkers from the humanities, the project seeks to develop a nexus of understanding between art, empathy, and the degradation of the ocean.

The Glynn Vivian have programmed a series of workshops throughout which relate to themes within the exhibition, please visit our website for further information.
