  • TUE - SUN

Organizing Institution: Scotland + Venice Deep

​Venue: Docks Cantieri Cucchini, S. Pietro di Castello 40

Description

deep dive (pause) uncoiling memory is an installation of new work by award-winning artist Alberta Whittle. Spanning two rooms in a former boatyard, Alberta’s work is an environment containing works in tapestry, film, and sculpture connected through a shared vocabulary of motifs and ideas. Through her rich symbolism, Alberta encourages us to slow down in order that we may collectively consider the historic legacies and contemporary expressions of racism, colonialism, and migration and begin to think outside of these damaging frameworks.
