Below the Tide Line
Dec 2019 -
‘Below the Tide Line’ was unable to remain open to its original advertised end date 4 May 2020 due to the Gallery closure in response to COVID-19.
Presented in conjunction with GOMA’s ‘Water’ exhibition (7 December 2019 – 26 April 2020), 'Below the Tide Line' has been developed in collaboration with Erub Arts, Marion Gaemers and Lynnette Griffiths. In their work the artists create sculptures made out of ghost net as a way to raise awareness about ocean pollution. 'Ghost net' is a term that refers to fishing nets that have been abandoned or lost, causing great harm to marine life. 'Below the Tide Line' features a spectacular artwork display as well as a drawing activity and an interactive screen-based animation exploring ocean conservation issues.
A series of hands-on workshops on select dates will invite participants to create a piece of coral using ghost net material. The workshop outcomes will be incorporated into a collaborative coral structure on display in gallery 1.4.
