Event Details

The shape of our seas is changing; our shores are now much more than where land meets sea.

Our beaches are a place of return for discarded human made plastics.

The devastating effect on sea life is reflected in the amount of plastic ingested by marine life and seabirds.

Australia’s relationship with our pacific neighbours is littered with ongoing disputes over resources rights, as well as great floating islands (gyres) of plastic, brought together by ocean currents.

The majority of plastic debris in the sea ultimately finds its way into one of the great swirling gyres, the largest of which is the great North Pacific garbage patch.

Most of these gyres exist in international waters, which makes clean up no one nation’s responsibility.

 

Curated by Sarah Heyward, artists Anna Davern; Liv Boyle; Emma Grace; Laila Costa; Melinda Young; Pennie Jagiello; Claire Brooks; Laura Eyles and Bridget Kennedy will work with discarded plastics and marine debris but are also invited to work with non-plastic materials in response to the shape of our seas and our relationship with the waters in between Australia and our pacific neighbours.

 

Celebratory Drinks and Artist Talk on Saturday 21 July, 12-2pm.

All welcome!
