Abstract

Sarah Scout is delighted to present I Would Breathe Water, a group exhibition curated by Kit Wise that brings together works by artists from Australia and the UK that consider the medium and politics of water in contemporary life. Jordan Baseman, Lily Hibberd, Siri Hayes, Rosslynd Piggott and Kit Wise utilise cinematic, sculptural, textual and photographic means to explore our complex and at times contested relationship with the world’s most essential and prevalent resource. Wise’s curation takes history’s romanticised vision of the oceanic landscape, and in particular Australia’s obsession with the beach, and imbues it with a strong ecological conscience. I Would Breathe Water invites us to embrace this amorphous, bittersweet condition and to ‘suffer a sea-change.
