Richard Broomhall: Severn Sea

01/04/17-01/05/17 Contains Art, East Quay, Watchet, Somerset, TA23 0AQ open Wed – sun & daily during holidays Severn Sea is a multi-media installation by Richard Broomhall inspired by the ancient mythology surrounding the West Somerset coastline and the Bristol Channel. Artist-in-residence with Contains Art, Broomhall is inspired by the infrastructure of submarine internet cables that connect UK mainland from the River Severn to the rest of the world. His work is concerned with how this modern form of communication (which makes up 98% of all electronic communication) reflects the ancient forms of myth and storytelling surrounding this vast waterway. ’As you stand on the bay at Watchet and you look out across the Severn to Barry and Cardiff, you’re looking immediately over four cables... Watchet and Contains Art are vital to [my] Severn Sea project’ – Richard Broomhall
