the sound of water
this thursday (18 march 2010) the mermaid is taking part in an exhibition of water themed photographs at temple pier, london. the mermaid will be showing extracts from her ‘the ocean in the city’ project. ‘the ocean in the city’ is about how we connect to the ocean in the city. the project is split into two image series. one is about the strange workings of accidental, unintended and official links such as street names or opening your hair & nail salon in a former seafood shop without changing the sign. the second one is about personal connections. for this part, the mermaid visits londoners in their homes or meets them in places where they connect to the ocean. she then photographs what that particular person wants to show/has prepared & talks about it with them.

Kaparte Promotions presents:
The Sound of Water
A visual & sonic event
The symbolism of water has a universal undertone of purity and fertility. Symbolically, it is often viewed as the source of life itself as we see evidence in countless creation myths in which life emerges from primordial waters. 11 artists photographers and four music acts celebrate the relationship between the element and the surroundings, showing with their images and sound their personal vision of water, simply on a boat, on the Thames.
