Emma Critchley: When The Waters Recede

  • 20 February — 10 May 2015 *on now

When The Waters Recede relates to a series of site specific installations, across three locations along the Bristol Channel that respond to the 1607 floods, the largest and most destructive floods in British history.

The floods are now generally believed to be a tsunami due to the similarities in eyewitness accounts to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The flooding resulted in the drowning of some 2000 people, with houses and villages swept away and more than 300 square miles of lowland along 350 miles of coast destroyed.

Emma Critchley will present preparation work and sketches from this ambitious regional project, (due to be completed in 2016-17), in Plymouth Art Centre’s restaurant.
