In this exhibition international artists’ work with the moving image, taking a closer look at the ever-changing boundaries between land and sea, exploring Hull’s long-standing prominence as a gateway to the North Sea and beyond. Featuring artists including Lavinia Greenlaw, Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen, Simon Faithfull and Cecilia Stenbom, Somewhere Becoming Sea reflects how expanses of water that divide countries are also channels that connect them. At a time when climate change threatens to blur boundaries further and bring far-reaching economic impact, the exhibition captures the sea’s elemental power and asks: is everywhere now Somewhere Becoming Sea?
