ZADIE XA: CHILD OF MAGOHALMI AND THE ECHOES OF CREATION
Ground floor gallery
1 February – 4 May 2020
Child of Magohalmi and the Echoes of Creation is a major new multimedia project centred around a sub-aquatic marine environment created through atmospheric lighting, surround-sound, moving image and sculpture. Within this immersive world, Xa presents an origin story inspired by verbally transmitted Korean creation myths, in particular, the giant Grandmother Mago (Magohalmi) who created the land. Highlighting the value and historic erasure of knowledge passed between womxn, the artist weaves Mago’s narrative together with that of Granny, a 105-year-old orca dolphin who trained generations of orca within her endangered pod to survive.

MARC BAUER: MAL ȆTRE / PERFORMANCE
First floor gallery
1 February – 10 May 2020
Marc Bauer’s new drawings explore depictions of people on boats throughout history. The artist’s references include fifteenth-century Catholic ex-voto paintings offered in thanks to those who survived danger at sea, Theodore Gericault’s 1819 painting The Raft of the Medusa and contemporary media images of Aquarius, the boat that rescued migrants in the Mediterranean sea in 2018. Using the slow and cumulative process of drawing and erasing, Bauer’s project is an attempt to understand the relationship between images and our perception of reality. Mal Ȇtre / Performance brings the past into the present, looking at migration and sea-travel as a fundamental aspect of the human condition.
