Submerged Bodies – Ashanti Hare, Tëan Roberts, Melanie Stidolph

Curated by Isla McGregor-Smith, Ashleigh Sirs an Sabrina Sudol – MA Curation students, University of Exeter.

Building upon the ideas and theories of Hydrofeminism put forth by Astrida Neimanis, who argues that we are all bodies of water inextricably connected to the natural world, Submerged Bodies: Mythical Reflections in South West Waters will explore the relationship between the artist’s body and water, whilst considering the myths that exist around gender and water. In the global context of environmental disaster, it is now, more than ever, important to re-learn how we can connect our bodies with nature and exist on our planet.
