Come ‘Hell or High Water' the show will go on! 🌊
Due to recent restrictions this event will now be online only.
I’m very pleased to be part of this show onboard LV21 a historic, 40 metre steel-hulled lightship transformed into a floating art space and performance facility.
A Weekend of art celebrating life’s transitions; tales of adversity, survival and inevitable transformation featuring artworks and performances...
My new work for the show "The Pods" features the boilers in the bowels of the ship.
My initial proposal for Hell or High Water was to develop my work along the theme of isolation which became much more relevant this year.
I love the space inside the Light Vessel 21 ship and particularly the area beneath deck, which to me resembles the images of spacecraft from sci-fi in TV and film. Ships are so closely tied to how we view space travel through the lens of sci-fi, we picture spacecraft slowly gliding through space like boats.
For Hell and Highwater I use the lower deck as a space to explore and extend my work inspired by sci-fi themes, isolation and the alien figure. Using the air receiver tanks as a starting point for the work as they resemble the isolation helmet designed by sci-fi pioneer Hugo Gernsback, editor of Science and Invention magazine. I picture these spaces as isolation booths or container pods for the work I made for the show.
All events and exhibition will be online so please check LV21 website for full details.
