Primordial at Fringe Arts Bath, by Laura Denning; BSU Env Hums PhD
This exhibition brings together eleven artists whose work considers how humans and other species relate to water, often from an ecological and geopolitical perspective. After responding to the annual call out I was selected as a Guest Curator for Fringe Arts Bath 2017. This is my second year of involvement and I was keen to return to Cleveland Pools as a venue. I was also interested in using the curatorial opportunity to explore my research interests as a PhD student at Bath Spa University, doing a practice-led degree in Environmental Humanities. All my work focuses on water and I am becoming increasingly interested in inter-species relationships in an aquatic context. So I put a call out to artists to this effect, and Primordial is the result.
Come to the Finale event with alldaybreakfast at Cleveland Pools, 1pm on Sunday June 11th.
Laura Denning (curator) thanks Bath Spa University Environmental Humanities Research Centre, and Bath Spa University Public Engagement Fund for their kind assistance. Recipient of the Bath Spa University Research Centre for Environmental Humanities inaugural PhD Studentship – practice-led. With many thanks to the Trustees of Cleveland pools, especially Sally and Ann, and to Arran and Scarlet at Fringe Arts Bath, and to all the artists taking part.
