Whitstable Biennale Satellite Exhibition
Intertidal investigated the impact of water as it slowly erodes and reshapes earth, human-made objects and coastlines over time. The tide line mark in the Whitstable Baptist Church Hall, recording the 1953 flood, was a jumping off point for these three London-based artists’ separate investigations of water and tides. Fiona Fouhy explored the impact of tidal waves through a series of successive mono-prints and animation; Catherine Jacobs showed immersive psychological landscapes using photography and video; and Marcia Teusink looked at the effects of the sea on human artifacts through photography and objects collected on walks by the sea. A shared interest in natural processes, amateur archaeology and the poetics of decay ran through the exhibition.
