Silver-Tongued Seas

︎ Exhibition
︎ 16–31 October 2021
︎ Jupiter Woods, London

Artists: Maïa Nunes & Pádraig Spillane

Curators: Rosa Abbott & Iarlaith Ni Fheorais (Liquid)

Liquid is delighted to announce the exhibition Silver-Tongued Seas with Maïa Nunes and Pádraig Spillane at Jupiter Woods, 16–31 October 2021. This exhibition has been awarded funding by Culture Ireland.

Silver-Tongued Seas reflects on the sea as a site where diasporas and pharmaceuticals move across human and oceanic bodies, and the process of trauma and healing that occurs from that movement. Through sculpture, image, video and sound, both artists mine their personal histories and geographies, pinpointing sites of exchange and desire, featuring new work by Maïa Nunes, co-commissioned by VISUAL Carlow.

A publication featuring an essay by Roisin Agnew accompanies the exhibition.
