Life on the sea has captivated the collective consciousness of land dwellers—we go there to seek freedom, respite, peace and thrill, to unplug, practice mindfulness and drift into memories of childhood.  Yet the water has always been a highly sought after and contested territory, a site of violence, failed experimentation, economic competition, and the unknown.  This exhibition pulls from the Artspace Flatfile to explore how artists address these dualities today, constituting a show full of trips, which play out like a deliberately difficult tongue twister.
