Sea Swim: Head Above Water

18 February - 31 March 2017

Farrer's Bar & Brasserie @ Scarborough Spa

The transformative effects of sea bathing that inspire artists and writers are captured in an exhibition that explores its sensations, stories and psychological impact. Head Above Water reveals the embodied imagination of the swimmer’s experience through film, photography, sculpture, drawing and poetry at venues around Scarborough.

Farrer’s Bar at The Spa displays a series of photographs by Tessa Bunney that show people enjoying tidal pools around Britain’s coastline.

See the rest of the exhibition at Crescent Arts Gallery; Woodend Gallery and Stephen Joseph Theatre

Curated by Lara Goodband, Sea Swim

Supported by Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts.
