Explore the significance and mystery of bodies of water through a collaboration between an artist and poet.

Poet Clare Best and painter Mary Anne Aytoun-Ellis have worked together for several years, examining and responding to the complex and fragile relationship between human life and groundwater.

Working from nature, memory and imagination, they explored hidden and overlooked bodies of water across the south of England in Sussex, Kent and the New Forest. Through this prolonged collaboration, their work is also a response to each other’s creativity.

As well as their paintings and poetry, the exhibition includes relevant items from the museum’s local collections.
