Welcome to Into the Deep, an immersive exhibition that delves into the ocean’s mesmerizing depths. During World Ocean Month, we celebrate the awe-inspiring magnificence of this great mass of waters while raising awareness about the pressing environmental challenges it faces.
In this group exhibition, we embark on a visual journey capturing the ocean’s allure. From sunlight dancing through turquoise waters to the mysterious and beautiful creatures that live in it, we explore the beauty of the blue. You will find bronze and wood sculpture, pencil illustration, bright acrylic and our very first artist who uses Artificial Intelligence to create fanciful works related to the ocean.
Unveiling the ocean’s power and plight through art
However, Into the Deep goes beyond admiration; it’s a call to action. Through key pieces, we shed light on the threats plaguing our oceans—plastic waste entangling marine life, coral reefs bleached by rising temperatures, and the consequences of overfishing. From Michelle Beattie’s collection of works made from plastic washed up on Cape Town beaches, to Stefan Olivier’s AI-generated coral mandalas, this exhibition aims to spark dialogue, encouraging reflection and empathy towards the ocean. Together, we must protect and restore its fragile balance.
Join us as we explore the depths of Into the Deep, where beauty meets fragility and awareness sparks action. Let us appreciate, protect, and restore the wondrous realm that shapes our planet’s destiny.
Into the Deep group exhibition is on display at the gallery 1 – 25 June.
Join us at the exhibition opening on Thursday, 8 June, 17:30.
