Within the small space of the new gallery Dees shows very different works on the same theme – boats and seafaring – which are all at once touching, humorous, real and unreal.
There are installations, objects, photo works and a video work.
Ships and shipping have been metaphoric themes throughout art history – just think of Jheronimus Bosch, Dutch 17th century seascapes, Delacroix, Géricault and Turner – and part of that heritage is present in the show.
Thinking about the small space of the gallery it might be even more surprising that the show is also about space, whether it is the space of thought or the actual vanished or hidden space of a ship.
