 SALT FESTIVAL OF THE SEA & ENVIRONMENT 2015 

The Exhibition: 

22 October – 24 October 2015, Lindon Studio, Folkestone

 

The Exhibition showed the work of artists Joanna Jones, 

Helen Lindon and Clare Smith. The works in the exhibition are linked by the element of water - more specifically the sea. 

 

The Conversation 

6-9pm Lindon Studio

 

The conversation was held in the ‘A Table of Elements’ exhibition space, with sustenance and refreshment provided.

 

After the curated conversation there was a chance to preview Joanna Jones’ film, La Mer, that charts the forms and structures of twenty four painting actions over a couple of months brought together skilfully by film maker Dominic de Vere. The evolution of the  painting accompanies an interpretation of Debussy’s La Mer, by Sally Beamish for the Trio Apache.

 

The evening was hosted in a stimulating, intimate and friendly atmosphere where the conversation ranged from the effect of the moon on women giving birth, to possible future architectural 

design to deal with sea level rise, from the ‘hyper-globe’ to being alone in a camper van in the Arctic.
