Primordial Soup

This exhibition will bring together artists whose work considers how humans and other species relate to water. I am particularly interested in how these relationships are considered critically – from an ecological, political and historical perspective. Ideally the work situates itself within the themes of place, ecology and the digital, and is site specific. Water itself has no DNA, yet it carries the traces of a myriad of plant and animal life – it really is the primordial soup. I would welcome artists whose work is site-specific but not exclusively so. Cleveland Pools offers a unique context for works on this theme, but the site also offers challenges, which must be taken into consideration – from damp to dilapidated buildings. The important thing is that included work embraces critical relationships between species and water.

Interested? Email primordial@fringeartsbath.co.uk to submit. Deadline Monday 27 March 2017.

Curated by Laura Denning.
