Exhibition: Sarah Cameron Sunde: 36.5/A Durational Performance with the Sea

“36.5 /A Durational Performance with the Sea” is a series of nine site-specific participatory performances and video works by the interdisciplinary artist Sarah Cameron Sunde, spanning six continents and seven years (2013 – 2020). At each site, Sunde stands in ocean water for a full tidal cycle (12 to 13 hours) as the water rises up to her chin, then recedes to her feet; the local community participates in all aspects of the work. The entire performance is filmed in real time, turned into a durational video work of the same length and shown as a multi-channel video installation that premieres on location within a week of the performance. This exhibition will feature a cycle of four multi-channel videos, one from each location where Sunde has performed since 2015: the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Brazil and Kenya. 36.5 generates personal, local and global conversations about deep time and sea-level rise. It is a radical call to reconsider our relationship with water as individuals, as communities and as a species. For more information about the project, visit www.36pt5.org.
