Group exhibition | Speaking Water


Where: Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, corner Vulcan Street and Campbell Street, Moruya

Opening hours: Daily 10am to 4pm

Speaking Water is a series of collaborations and video works created by five international award-winning contemporary female artists.

Featuring works by:

  • Simone Hooymans
  • Anna Glynn
  • Jasmine Cederqvist
  • Emily Jay
  • Anastasia Savinova.

The exhibition contemplates the journey of water through time from ancient ice and glaciers, through rivers, waves, and seas, to the clouds and rains, to living things composed of water. An amazing cycle where tears may return as the swirling mist on a distant mountain top.

The works are interwoven with recurring imagery and sound overlapping; a watery journey and expedition. Composed of animation, experimental video, performance, and more, the series ebbs and flows just as water does.

Artist profiles

Since early 2021 the featured artists have shared online conversations discussing aspects of the world they inhabit and what they have been experiencing. These conversations inspired artworks about how connected these artists truly are, and how such connections exist and evolve through time and space.

As water resonated thematically with the artists and their previous artistic explorations, it became the central motif for exploring and strengthening their connection.

This exhibition was developed in collaboration with the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery, NSW, Australia and curated by Anna Glynn.
