Detailed Description

Ship to Shore: Art and the Lure of the Sea emerged from, and was inspired by, an exhibition held across Southampton’s John Hansard Gallery and SeaCity Museum in 2014.

Based around interviews conducted by Jean Wainwright with 16 internationally renowned contemporary artists whose works were featured in the show, the book weaves an evocative narrative about the sea and its enduring lure for artists.

Powerful meanings of the sea as something seductive or dangerous, a visual metaphor, a political boundary, or the site of trauma or imagination, emerge as the inspiration for these artists and link their very different practices together. As the words and images unfold we are reminded how the sea has enticed us across centuries, thrilling us with its seductive vitality.

Featuring the work of many artists including: Thomas Joshua Cooper, Tacita Dean, Susan Hiller, Isaac Julien, and Catherine Yass. With framing essays by curator, Jean Wainwright and history and biography writer, Philip Hoare.
