    Abstract

    BLEACHED is a striking new sculpture created by artist Tania Kovats as her response to both the beauty of coral and its fragile position in the world's ecosystem. BLEACHED recycles specially fabricated coral from 'The Deep' in Hull, salvaged from a previous display, which was decommissioned in 2016. Kovat's work creates a slice through a 'bleached' coral reef, a starkly beautiful representation of a potentially devastating environmental event. In the exhibition BLEACHED is accompanied by other works by Kovats, linked to themes of the ocean life and environment. At the C4DI exhibition space there are new drawings on canvas, Sea Mark, and existing sculptures of ocean bowls, Indian, Pacific and Atlantic. Showing in public areas at The Deep are the barnacle sculpture Colony made in response to her residency in the Galapagos Islands and a series of evaporation ink drawings.
