Dark Water - sculptural works
Dark water is a major collaborative project by artists Erin Coates and Anna Nazzari and includes drawings, and sculptural works, as well as the central short film work. To see more on the other elements view the FILM and DRAWING components of Dark Water.
Dark Water examines psychological thresholds and the limits of the human body in relation to oceanic environments. This new interconnected body of work draws on the artists’ research into marine flora and fauna and the experiences of deep-sea divers, to explore familial trauma and the dissolution of the human psyche in a strange waterlogged architectural space.
Dark Water is currently on show at Linden New Art in Melbourne and has been supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and the Western Australian Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
