Running until 22 December, Silt examines cultural and physical relationships to water. The exhibition centres on a large scale sculptural installation accompanied by a series of studio works by London-based Nika Neelova, alongside additional work by Colombian artist Carolina Caycedo and American artist Rachael Champion, looking at issues such as the impact of dams on water supply to indigenous communities.
The exhibition title references the process in which materials suspended in water are deposited over time in pipes, at river mouths and estuaries. Silt is mineral rich, fundamental to shaping changing tidal landscapes and renewing fertility. But it is also unstable, thick and a challenge to free-flowing waterways.
