DEEP ANATOMY

FBbanner
dEEP ANATOMY is an exhibition of works by eleven artists and freedivers that examine immersion in liquid states, island conditions, and underwater spaces. The tall columns of Auckland’s unique ‘Silo Park’ become the site for works about depth in various media – photography, text, video, performance, and installation.

Contributors include the OBIE Award winning New York director Christopher McElroen, finalist for the Costa First Novel Award Jess Richards, performance artist Sally J Morgan, freediving photographer Daan Verhoeven, and 18x world-record breaking NZ freediver William Trubridge.

Developed at a special symposium at the Vertical Blue freediving championship (‘the Wimbledon of free-diving’ – NY Times) with PS1#21 Fluid States, these works look at performance and free-diving as integrated processes, where action and intellect combine, and a ‘deep anatomy’ emerges.
