This contemporary art exhibition explored the gendered relationship with the sea and seaweed. Bringing together works by internationally-renowned female artists, Sea Garden also featured RAMM’s first South West Commission by Bryony Gillard. Gillard explored Amelia Warren Griffiths‘ seaweed collection through a new moving image work Unctuous Between Fingers.
Sea Garden explored the interconnected themes of algae collecting, feminism, and environmentalism. The thought-provoking artworks expressed the artists’ intimate relationship with their environment, questioning how we relate to each other and the natural world.
