Relics od D0>  Installation at Site Gallery in 'Heavy Water', 2021

Platform 20: Heavy Water (Site Gallery)

"Heavy Water is a homecoming – a collective return from relative isolation to the land. The group exhibition explores humanity, transience and the lure of the natural world; from rituals of mourning to the secrets of matriarchal moss colonies and the historic migration of humans across lands in the search of peace, of freedom.

Presenting work developed during their time on the Freelands Artists’ Programme, Maud Haya-Baviera, Victoria Lucas and Joanna Whittle’s interdisciplinary exhibition weaves historical narratives with fiction and mysticism." Site Gallery 2021

The group now work together as the Heavy Water Collective.
