Until you became me is a site-specific exhibition exploring how water connects us to each other and our environments. Emerging artists Karen Le Roy Harris and Miriam Sedacca with the support of Arts Council, England have created an immersive space using sculpture, installation, film and performance made in response to the unique and atmospheric space of the House Mill, the world’s largest surviving tidal mill.
The artists have created an immersive space which invites visitors to consider themselves as bodies of water constantly in flux and intimately connected with others and with their surroundings. Our human bodies consist of 50-75% water, as such we have an inseparable and co-substantive relationship with all other bodies of water, whether they be oceans, reservoirs, or any of the millions of species which inhabit earth and also hold water within themselves.
Throughout the exhibition water is explored as a medium, including in Miriam Sedacca’s film installation Your skin is only surface tension, in which water flows through sculptural forms with projections on liquid. In Karen Le Roy Harris’ installation We go on sharing, you pouring life and me staining your bed, ceramic anthropomorphic forms are presented alongside found objects from the rivers.
A diverse programme of events with local and international artists will support the show.
