DEEP TIME DEPOSITS
Tidal Impressions of the River Thames
Below Zero Finnish Art Prize 2020
Exhibition 26 February–5 April
Tuula Närhinen understands water as a dynamic agent and naturally occurring archive of the Anthropocene. In a quest to ‘fathom the subconscious of River Thames’, Närhinen builds a portrait of this central waterway with reference to mid-Victorian photographic chemistry, sewage system and philanthropy; and to the layers of deep time embedded over thousands of years and visible through fragments preserved in London’s unique, anaerobic river-mud.
