Venue: Centrespace

“Now, three Bristol-based female artists are exploring the siren from new perspectives.

“Looking in to the relationship of women to the sea, science and society, this exhibition takes the mythological figure into surprising areas, showing how siren stories reflect the anxieties and desires of the people that tell them.

“The three women approach the subject from different angles, layering their individual practices to create something unique through collage, photography and sculpture. The combined effect is an other-worldly subaquatic experience.

Artists: Hannah Battershell, Chloe Edwards, Becky Hoghton.

Nov 14-18, Centrespace, Leonard Lane (off Corn St), 11am-5pm.
