Water Marks Assemblage – Andy Freedman

The very multi-sensual and multi-temporal nature of the water’s edge demands a multi-disciplinary dialogue and response. Encompassing prompts and questions from both practitioners and academics, Watermarks makes and performs work that reflects this ‘edgy’ and liminal zone. What has emerged (and continues to emerge) is a dialogical, relational and shared set of responses as we separately (in time of Covid-19) walk our waters’ edges. With climate crisis, absence/loss, visible/invisible, space between, touch and image making, ethics and aesthetics guiding our footsteps.

The Edge Conference

The Watermarks project and participating artists will be in discussion as a part of The University of the Highlands and Islands – The Edge Conference on the 15th of December 2021.
