Nicola Rae: Submerged, 2021
Virtually There, APT Gallery Online, 6 Creekside, Deptford, London SE8 4SA. 13th - 25th April 2021.


The potential for fish to swim about in our submerged APT Gallery spaces is explored for 'Virtually There'. The fish fry were filmed underwater at Pagham Harbour in West Sussex beside one of the Pagham Rife sluice gates. This coastal area is equally at risk from flooding as the Thames Estuary including Deptford, as both are projected to be below annual flood levels by 2050 (Climate Central, 2020). Only our fragile Creek Walls and DIY pump system currently stop water and the creek inhabitants rushing into the gallery spaces.
