Until 3 Sept – STILL exhibition about water @ Metal, Chalkwell Hall
Still: Conflict, Conservation and Contemplation is an exhibition of new works made by artists in relation to the economics, politics, ownership and contested nature of global water supplies in the era of climate change.
Water is all around us, yet increasingly we need to take steps to conserve our supplies of it and become aware that we cannot just leave the tap running.
In our every day lives we take water for granted as a supply from the tap, a place for leisure and as a basic human right. Over the next forty years, predictions intimate that water will be as contended as oil now is in the post-industrial and developing countries. The artworks broadly touch on our relationship to one of our most important commodities.
