Love and the Ocean is a programme of artists’ moving image works in which the push and pull of tides overlap with emotional currents of desire and longing. Focusing variously on the movement of luxury goods, the extraction of mineral resources, and the will to control elemental processes, these works share an interest in the sea as a site of human wants and wishes, and make visible the structures and systems that support these, from container ships and oil rigs, to magic and belief.
