Self-raising Sea (2019)
Artists: Tom Hinton
Dates: 4 June – 1 July 2020
Digital video, sound, 4 minutes 36 seconds
In the late 19th century Victorian flour magnate Alexander McDougall designed the Welsh town of Fairbourne as an idyllic seaside community. In 2020 Fairbourne is listed for managed retreat due to rising sea levels. Using self-raising flour the artist uses delivers a poetic gesture, mixing a commodity with the land.
Tom Hinton is an artist based in Auckland.
