Corinna Wagner: TerraOceanus

17 June 2023 to 12 August 2023

This exhibition explores our relationship to rivers and seas, and to the edge lands around them.

The exhibition has grown out of Professor Corinna Wagner’s work with the Time and Tide Bell Project, supported by the UK Climate Resilience Programme and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). Artist Marcus Vergette’s bells, which are dotted around the British coast, celebrate the connections between land and sea, but also remind us of rising sea levels, flooding and coastal erosion.

 A new bell will be featured in this exhibition in addition to COTIDAL a film by artist Tania Kovats also commissioned by Time and Tide Bell.

Wagner’s practice reflects this emphasis on sustainability and renewability: she works in cyanotype and plant-based anthotype, prints on mulberry paper and cotton rag, processes images in seawater and sand, paints with oils made from reclaimed waste and with natural beeswax. These layered images, and her handmade photobooks, capture the haunting and ever-changing nature of edge lands and coasts. 

Supported by Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC).
