This vibrant and intriguing contemporary art exhibition explores the female-gendered relationship with the sea and seaweed. ‘Sea Garden’ brings together RAMM’s first South West Commission, a moving-image work by Bryony Gillard, alongside works by internationally-renowned contemporary artists.
Works include Dartmoor-based photographer Susan Derges’s recent rock pool series; film and photography by Dorothy Cross; Mikhail Karikis’s video installation ‘Sea Women’; and Turner Prize-nominee Lucy Skaer’s reworked nineteenth-century seaweed prints. You will be surprised and challenged by thoughtful and cutting-edge artwork, displayed alongside beautiful examples of pressed seaweeds from RAMM’s own collections.
