A NEW photography exhibition organised by Street Level Photoworks in partnership with North Ayrshire Council’s Arts & Culture Team has been unveiled this week at the Harbour Arts Centre.

‘Everything Flows’ features two separate photography retrospectives by the dynamic visual arts duo Coulson + Tennant and Edinburgh-based contemporary artist Victoria Clare Bernie.

Part of VisitScotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21 festival, ‘Everything Flows’ launched on July 28 and will run until September 18.

Featuring the work of award-winning artist partnership Saskia Coulson and Colin Tennant, this special exhibition will see the duo presenting works from their series After It’s Gone, exploring the landscape, geology and ecology of the Artic, Subarctic and Antarctic regions.

Coulson + Tennant said: “Over the last five years, our expedition locations have included the Arctic Circle including Svalbard, Greenland and the Canadian Artic; the Antarctic Circle including South Georgia, South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic peninsula.

“During these expeditions we were engrossed by the beauty of these desolate polar landscapes but equally alarmed by their vanishing environments as we watched huge glaciers ceaselessly crumbling and travelling far beyond the normal restrictions of the ice caps and frozen seas.

“We hope to share the beauty of these fragile places and contribute to the climate emergency discussion while inspiring all of us to work together to protect our planet as a whole.”
The exhibition Slow Water by Victoria Clare Bernie is also on show at the HAC as part of the ‘Everything Flows’ showcase.

Her creative exhibit is a representation of Scotland’s landscapes, coasts and rivers, forests and hills and features work originally created in 2011 during a Leverhulme Trust Artist-in-Residency at the Scottish Association for Marine Science Research Laboratory (SAMS), based at Dunstaffnage near Oban in Scotland.

During her time at SAMS, Victoria worked in collaboration with marine and freshwater scientists and the Hydro to research and create a form of ‘liquid
atlas’ mapping the present condition of water in Scotland.

The exhibition by Street Level Photoworks will run Wednesday and Thursday 10am – 3pm, Friday 9am – 5pm and Saturday 12 noon – 5pm from now until September 18, 2021.
