An epic maritime poem is the inspiration for a major exhibition of international art in Bath.
The Andrew Brownsword Gallery at The Edge is pleased to present this important exhibition featuring 14 artists’ works that consider the contemporary resonance of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 – 1834) - one of the most influential poems in the English language.
The exhibition showcases a series of new commissions and artworks including: Zubenelgenubi a film by Serena Korda; a bespoke installation by Mary Evans, which draws on historical artefacts held at The Holburne Museum, Bath; sculptural works by Grace Schwindt; a multi-sensory presentation of Raft of the Medusa by Lucy & Jorge Orta and special contributions from Ellen Gallagher & Edgar Cleijne and Linder Sterling. Featured alongside are selected artworks by Nicola Bealing, Justin Brice Guariglia, Vija Celmins, Angela Cockayne, Naomi Frears, Nadav Kander, Joe Lyward and Richard Wentworth.
