We are delighted to host our second exhibition as part of our VESSEL project at mote102 with installations from residency artists HUNITI GOLDOX, Tonya McMullan, Jenny Pope and Claudia Zeiske.

Artist collective HUNITI GOLDOX presents Measuring time through the fall of water an immersive video installation that features contemporary reenactments of a water clock – a time-keeping technique from ancient times that relies on the fall and flow of water through a vessel. It critically engages with colonial perspectives and scale, examining how territorial control is exerted through human-made structures like time zones, dammed rivers, and aridity lines. It provokes reflection on scientific and indigenous forms of knowledge, as well as the fates of unmeasurable objects, subjects and relations within the natural world.

Jenny Pope exhibits her coracle form Buoyancy in unprecedented times; a vessel form made from woven willow and bamboo and lined with recycled clothing that evokes the possibility of navigating hope in uncertain times.

Tonya McMullan presents a sculptural work coming through a period of research as part of her Repel and attract project that concentrates on the presence of tomato seedlings at the water treatment plant at Seafield, as well as interest in approaches to water collection and scent.

Claudia Zeiske exhibits her embroidered tablecloth which she has carried on her 500-mile journey walking the North Sea coast as part of her Slow Coast 500 project.
