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, Cyprus, 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.
