Sea of People

Gverović, Tina (2016) Sea of People. [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: Gverović, Tina

Solo exhibition across six rooms of the museum. In the main hall a series of paintings are presented on a large-scale raft. Two adjacent rooms host projections (using Overhead Projector) of text on the wall. The font (commissioned for this purpose) of the text is broken, disjointed, wavy and diffused. The text is comprised of a collection of stories, fact and/or fiction, related to migration, the movement of people between places, and the movement of the sea. I conducted research at the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Wave Tank at University College London. The audio and video material collected during this research formed one of the installations shown in this exhibition. The installations present transitional scenes – scenes which are caught between the desire to explore the possibilities of media and form, and the complexities of content. The fourth floor takes one tone, one colour, as a thread that seeps through all three rooms- it is a connecting element that ties them, unifies them. In the first of the three rooms there is a composition which includes prints of a figure that is walking. The prints are presented in a continuous line which encircles the room. In the next room are items of clothing and fabric gathered in various sculptural formations on the floor. Includes exhibition catalogue.
