TANIA KOVATS: Exhibition Preview & Artists Talk

Celebrate the opening of new gallery space with the exhibition preview of Tania Kovats’ Troubled Waters. Join the artist for a glass of wine and the opportunity to hear her talk about the work included in the show. 

Troubled Waters

Internationally renowned artist Tania Kovats is best known for producing sculptures, large-scale installations, drawings and temporal works which explore our experience and understanding of landscape.

Water has been a central theme in Kovats’ recent work, which has focused on the sea, river systems, maritime culture, flooding, tides, and the horizon line and incorporates the implicit socio-political and environmental associations.

Troubled Waters features the haunting sculptural work Bleached, which reflects on the remote but urgent issue of coral bleaching, and new drawings inspired by the artist’s on-going interest in marine biologist Rachel Carson’s seminal 1953 book The Sea Around Us and by 19th century Devon-based naturalist Henry Gosse’s coral drawings.

Venue: Phoenix Gallery, Exeter Phoenix
