  • Suitable for: 16+

    Waterborne, by UK artist duo French & Mottershead, is an audio work using lyrical narrative to describe the afterlife of the human body in water. Listen as you look out over the water and imagine your body below the surface, as it decays and dislocates on an epic journey from an urban canal, via a tidal river, into the sea.

    Combining forensics, art and ecology, Waterborne is the story of micro-inhabitations, algae and the flow of matter, and reminds us we are bodies of water.

    Please meet at the entrance to Brighton Palace Pier before finding a place to listen on the seafront. This is an outdoor work, so please wear appropriate clothing and sensible shoes. This work contains content some visitors may find disturbing.

    There are multiple listenings on Friday 8 September and Saturday 9 September. Check the website for an alternative time.

    Event booking has closed for 2017. We hope you enjoyed the Festival. Join us next year!
