Landfall And Departure: Epilogue

Nanaimo Art Gallery, Nanaimo, BC - To Mar 10

by Robin Laurence

This ambitious group exhibition considers resources distributed upon and extracted from the sea while also alerting us to our misunderstanding of the sea’s creatures and currents. As expressed in its media release, Landfall and Departure “endeavours to listen to the sea through contemporary visual
art, sound works, presentations and performances.” Perspectives range from those of citizen scientists monitoring salmon stocks in the Broughton Archipelago, to workers on a cargo ship plying international waters.
