From the 9th to the 15th of March ONCA will be hosting an exhibition featuring four artists, Katie HeneryHelen CannStuart Kuhn, and Jonathan Hyde, in response to WhaleFest, the world’s largest festival about whales, dolphins and marine life.

In the summer of 2014, these four artists became part of the crew of Sea Dragon, a 22 metre steel sailing boat that  journeyed 1300 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from Reykjavik in Iceland to Gothenberg in Sweden. Working with marine biologists, scientists, documentary film makers and an old Icelandic sea captain, they spent their time on board searching the cold waters for whales and dolphins. As part of Whalefest, this exhibition is their final destination point. Installation, photography, film, drawing and mapping tell a sea saga of elusive whales, hunters, saltwater and a coming together of art and science.

The artists travelled with Pangaea Exploration who operate expeditions focused on marine education, exploration and conservation.
