Sea-Fever: a collaboration

Here's a good record of a project with photographer Mike Perry and musician Pete Judge.


Mike’s images make an intriguing and unnerving formal beauty out of plastic detritus from the seashore. It "engages with significant and pressing environmental issues, in particular the tension between human activity and interventions in the natural environment, and the fragility of the planet’s ecosystems."

Sea-Fever took John Masefield's 1902 poem of that name – "I must go down to the seas again..." as its point of departure.

The exhibition took place in November-December 2016, De Queeste Art, Watou, Belgium, with contributions from Bruno Van Dijck, painter, Mike Perry, photographic artist, Philip Gross, poet, Pete Judge, musician and composer, and Jeroen Laureyns, art historian.
