Shezad Dawood Leviathan

Shezad Dawood's epic film series Leviathan comes to Bluecoat this summer for its most complete UK presentation to date. Set in an imaginary future, Leviathan explores the connection between mass migration and marine environments. It will be shown alongside textile and neon works, along with a new interactive virtual reality piece. Leviathan combines themes of marine ecologies, political systems, and mental health, to show how human activity and climate change are intertwined.  

Exhibition continues until Sun 13 Oct
