Beneath the Waves studies the psycho-geography of the coast and the lure of the sea. It is a border but a dangerous one, or a place between the known and the unknown that is always moving and permeable. Zoe Childerley works with photography and mixed-media to interrogate landscape, the concept of wilderness and the search for a primordial connection. She has a particular interest in combining a desire to experience the “sublime” with the inexplicable seduction of the abyss. Her recent practice looks at the narrative potential of photography in relation to its abstract capacities, incorporating drawing, text and moving-images.
