Curated by Rosie Unsworth
Throughout the history of our civilisation, the life-giving properties of water have inspired wonder and awe. Water has spawned deities and religions, inspired philosophers and early scientists, and has continually fuelled the artists' imagination who searches for the fundamental essence of life.
From the fountain of life, the sources of all rivers, the power of the seas and the gift of rainfall, our lives have always depended on water, and this most crucial element is the crux of our biosphere..
The "Ubiquitous Aqua" exhibition has invited a wide variety of notable artists and photographers to reflect on these themes and contribute their own meditations on the theme of water. Ubiquitous Aqua celebrates water in all its many stages, reflects on the fearful and sacred properties of the element without which there would be no life, and gives visitors the opportunity to share the visions and insights of these artists into the nature of water itself.
Timed to coincide with World Water Day, an exhibition is being staged from the 15th to 27th of March at the prestigious George House Gallery in Folkestone, where works of art are being curated by Rosie Unsworth around this theme. The works submitted are by turns powerful and tender reflections of this most pervasive element, and the exhibition will also give visitors the opportunity to acquire these works to add to their collections. In an elegant twist, those pictures sold will effectively turn back into clean water for those needing it, as all profits from the event are being donated to WaterAid.
