‘still water’ is a body of work that explores effects on the natural environment due to global warming. The images are created by drawing with a knife and sandpaper onto an inkjet print. At times the nude figures will appear in the image questioning the survival of humanity in sometimes nightmarish landscapes, while other compositions are reminiscent of an oasis that once was.  

Simulating hopeful futures through manipulation of landscapes, using famous Dutch artists as a reference point, the exhibition interrogates the actions of industrial human activity. ‘still water renders these actions synonymous with a symbolic Hell, and champions a return to the Divine, not in a religious context, but towards the ultimate divinity of nature. 

A collaborative performance between Henri van Noordenburg and music-maker Timothy Fairless will activate the exhibition space on opening night with sound and image. New ambient soundscapes will incorporate field recordings from and inspired by the natural environment surrounding Miles, inviting attendees to immerse themselves in the space with the artists, dismantling the borders between performer and audience.
