Ellen Brady: On the Beach at Night Alone

29 Sep 2018 - 06 Jan 2019

The Collection and Usher Gallery is pleased to present a new commission by artist Ellen Brady.

Ellen Brady's new exhibition in the Usher Gallery, On the Beach at Night Alone, explore our collective imagination of the ocean, being 'lost at sea' and both our physical and psychological relationship to water. Brady is particularly interested in the ways in which we attempt to contain and 'make safe' the sea, such as: the architecture of sea defences, satellite surveillance, weather forecasting, ship design and light houses. Her work explores these ideas through an immersive audio-visual installation.
