Where seas meet

    Abstract

    The exhibition examined the many contrasting ways that the sea has shaped our culture, our imaginations and our physical existence through mythical sea monsters, superstition and seaside traditions as well as trade and travel. While inherently without borders, we have mapped the sea for exploitation, geo-political advantage and for conservation. Ten new commissions were produced specially for Offshore, including works developed in conversation with leading marine scientists. Existing works by contemporary artists were selected for their related insights into the sea.
