Video: Artist discusses Ferens exhibition featuring people under water

A video that goes behind the scenes and shows the making of a new exhibition at Ferens Art Gallery has been released.

Sea; the Remains Between is the latest in an award-winning series of work from visual artist and filmmaker Estabrak.

The photographs feature people from diverse communities in Hull portrayed submerged in water. They were taken in natural and manmade bodies of water in the region.

The film below from Invisible Dust, which commissioned the project in partnership with Ferens Art Gallery, follows Estabrak as she meets the people who inspired her work.

Kirsten Simister, curator of art at Ferens Art Gallery, said: “Iโ€™m delighted the Ferens is exhibiting this important new commission by Estabrak. Her thought-provoking underwater photographs have been made in many parts of the world but this exciting project, in partnership with Invisible Dust, features local people and places.

“The work includes the stories of people whose voices are not always heard, using art as a way to explore wider social and environmental concerns.”

The exhibition is on display at Ferens Art Gallery until Sunday 23 February.
