Description Water is an essential element of life. In many cultures—from ancient to present-day—water is a vehicle of purification and divination, a subject for the mythological imagination and a metaphor for transcendence and contemplation. For those of us who live in the desert, water is a fragile resource, too often taken for granted. Waterways have defined the paths of civilization and trade, the locations of cities and the migration of whole peoples. Water can be amniotic, healing and cleansing on one hand; turbulent, unpredictable and catastrophic on the other. Organized by SMoCA Senior Curator Marilu Knode, Water, Water Everywhere. . . features work by fifteen international artists. The exhibition includes recent video installations, sculpture, photography and painting with the common subject matter of water. Artists in the exhibition are: Lara Baladi (Egypt), Dorothy Cross (Ireland), Song Dong (China), Stan Douglas (Canada), Laura Horelli (Finland), Ange Leccia (Corsica), Sabrina Mezzaqui (Italy), Rivane Neuenschwander (Brazil), Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba (Vietnam), Janaina Tschäpe (Germany/Brazil) and (from the United States) Tony Feher, Robert Gober, Jacci Den Hartog, Roni Horn and Carrie Yamaoka. Water, Water Everywhere. . . is accompanied by a 96-page, lushly illustrated catalogue with essays by Marilu Knode and critic Weng Choy Lee of Singapore.
