Sophy Rickett at the Arnolfini

Installation view, from Arnolfini programme archive

“Sophy Rickett’s new work To The River takes its inspiration from the Severn Bore – an amazing phenomenon of nature whereby a large tidal wave runs along the River Severn during the moon’s equinox. Rickett’s installation incorporates video and surround-sound audio, creating an immersive environment that portrays the anticipation of the crowd on the banks of the river at night awaiting the tidal surge.” (from the Arnolfini website)
