Anne Krinsky: Wetlands / Shifting Shorelines is a print exhibition inspired by vulnerable South Coast wetlands the artist photographed in 2020 and 2021. She worked with projection, photography and digital print to design this striking series of prints on dibond aluminium panels. It is part of her larger project about fragile wetlands and climate change in a range of river and coastal locations.

For this exhibition, Anne Krinsky explored wetlands on the South Coast, including Lymington and Keyhaven in The North Solent, Chichester, Pagham and Portsmouth Harbours and the Adur Estuary. The show brings together her creative response to the beauty of coastal wetlands and also highlights South Coast projects to preserve essential coastal habitats.

The artist says, “I wanted to share my passion for coastal wetlands before they vanish. These tidal habitats are threatened by rising sea levels and pollution. It’s heartbreaking to see the overgrowth of algae – resulting from agricultural runoff and dumping of sewage – that is engulfing South Coast wetlands. I am inspired by scientists and community groups working to protect and restore coastal ecosystems and wanted to bring attention to some of their work. I have included information panels about Bird Aware Solent, the Solent Oyster Restoration Project and the Sussex Kelp Restoration Project.”

The Seafront Gallery features five stone-filled gabion plinths that hold weatherproof artworks, in a prime location on Worthing’s accessible beachside promenade. Anne Krinsky’s images are designed and configured specifically for the Gabion’s architecture.

Anne Krinsky: Wetlands / Shifting Shorelines will be in situ for six months from late October 2021 through late April 2022. It will lead up to – and run in tandem with – the artist’s exhibition Anne Krinsky: Fugitive, at the Worthing Museum and Art Gallery, on view from 5 February – 1 May 2022.
