Ballast Seed Boat Tour with Artist Tania Kovats

Wednesday 13 July 2016, 18:45 to 20:15

Join Artist Tania Kovats, Drawing Water for a tour of Ballast Seed Garden

British artist Tania Kovats makes drawings, sculptures, installations and large-scale time-based projects exploring our experience and understanding of landscape. She is best known for Tree (2009), a permanent installation for the Natural History Museum in London to commemorate the centenary of Charles Darwin; and All the Sea (2014) which presents water from all the world’s seas, collected in one place. She once moved an entire wildflower meadow across Britain on a canal boat, and drew a line into a landscape by planting a crop of oats along the contour of a Somerset valley.  Tania will speak about the many different ways that the natural world has become both her subject matter and her material.

Meet at Arnolfini Box Office.

Seeds of Change: Floating Ballast Seed Garden brochure is available from Arnolfini.  

Located on Bristol’s historic harbour, just below Castle Park, the The Ballast Seed Garden was created by Maria Thereza Alves in June 2012. Constructed from a disused grain barge, the garden is populated with a variety of non-native plants, creating a living history of the city’s trade and maritime past.
