Aggregate Flows showcases a new body of work by Peruvian artist Alejandro Jaime that responds to the geology and extractive industries located around the River Colne, which runs alongside the University of Essex’s Colchester campus.


The River Colne is a longstanding recipient and instigator of dramatic landscape changes, from the glacial drift deposited half a million years ago, to the sand and gravel extracted for construction since the early twentieth century. Physical traces of these interconnected processes endure in the landscape and through this exhibition Jaime explores the remnants of deep geological time. Using painting, photography, land art and sculpture, he interrogates natural and human impacts on the environment, working across an expansive time frame that tracks spatial shifts through geological strata, industrialisation and ecological decline.

In collaboration with Dr Lisa Blackmore from the School of Philosophy and Art History, this exhibition is the outcome of Alejandro Jaime’s residency at the University of Essex and is presented in collaboration with the University of Essex Collection of Art from Latin America (ESCALA).
