Blue Space, Silkscreen, Textile, Text, Centrum Kultury ZAMEK, Poznań - Poland, 30 September - 9th August

A poisoned river, an excavated city, an algae bloom, a coastal village. The text, part mystery, part anecdotal diary, is set in an ambience of ecosystem damage, city planning and social unrest. It investigates present and inherited water infrastructure, geopolitical tensions, rurality, clear and less clear forms of protest. The work uses ASCII art to magnify the rumoured causes of water system collapse and considers textiles' inherent and historic relationship with water.

This work was created after residencies with Diego Gutierrez Valladares in Biella and Poznań, shared interests and conversations about rivers, textiles and print.
