Somewhere Becoming Sea: Hull 2017 UK City of Culture

Guy Moreton (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

This exhibition (5 April – 17 June 2017) at the Humber Street Gallery was included as part of the 'Roots and Routes' season of Hull 2017, City of Culture events staged in the city. The exhibition was curated by Steven Bode and included new film and photography commissions and artworks responding to the ecological and political history of the Humber, Nordic and North Sea region. It included contributions from Lavinia Greenlaw, Simon Faithful, Alec Finlay, Nina Sverdvik, Cecilia Stenbom, Esther Johnson and Guy Moreton. My practice-based-research resulted in a new artefact commissioned through the artists' film and video curatorial agency Film and Video Umbrella and Hull UK City of Culture. The research further developed my interest in landscape and trauma through the ecology and mythology of place, and in particular, how the tidal spit 'Spurn Head' on the Humber Estuary resonates melancholically both in popular culture Cf. Ralph Vaughan Williams 'Spurn Point' 1926 and as a measure for geological change and erosion.
