Works from The Ghost Tide—exhibition at Thames-Side Studio.

The Ghost Tide is an exhibition curated by Monika Bobinska and Sarah Sparkes that “evokes ghosts as a migratory tide” and its based on the idea that ghosts exist “as part of a belief system, across cultures, across national borders and throughout recorded history”(Thames-sidestudios.co.uk, 2018). 

Concerned of its geographical position placed next to the Thames Barrier in South-East London, the exhibition explores the works of artists from or working in this part of London: the “migratory tide of creative flotsam and jetsam” that expands just as London does (Thames-sidestudios.co.uk, 2018). The Ghost Tide features works from 30 different artists and includes “sculpture, installation, film, sound, performance and wall-based works”.
