Mythscapes in the Watery Realm
Mythscapes in the Watery Realm is an exhibition of work from printmakers based in Aberystwyth (Wales) and Brisbane (Queensland, Australia) is a collaborative project linking artistic communities from opposite sides of our planet.
Through the activity of printmaking, the participating artists were asked to explore the significance of river histories, particularly the legacy of catastrophic flood events, for communities. This highlights the often fickle relationship they have with the watery realm that can either sustain or destroy lifeways.
