Sullied Seas: Artist and National Oceanography Centre Talk

23 February 2017
6:00 pm

Mary Eighteen, Sullied Seas

As part of our February exhibition Sullied Seas Mary Eighteen and Prof Martin Solan from the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) provide further insight into their research and ongoing collaboration.

The NOC’s mission is to be amongst the world’s top oceanographic research institutions and make sense of changing seas, upon which future human wealth and well-being depends.

Prof Martin Solan is a Professor in Marine Ecology within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton. A marine benthic ecologist with broad interests in understanding biodiversity-environment interactions and the ecosystem consequences of altered diversity and environmental change. He champions strategic and applied interdisciplinary research in benthic habitats, from coastal to full ocean depth and across environmental gradients.

Mary Eighteen is an abstract painter based in the south of England. She studied fine art at Leeds University and from 1997-1999 completed an MA in Visual Theories at the University of East London. The notion of theory juxtaposed with studio practice continues to be central to her work, and is inspired in particular by Abjection, the writings of Julia Kristeva and artist Anselm Kiefer.

Booking required – £3 suggested donation, refreshments available.
