This vibrant and intriguing contemporary art exhibition explores the female-gendered relationship with the sea and seaweed.

The exhibition brings together RAMM's first South West Commission, a moving-image work by Bryony Gillard, alongside works by internationally renowned contemporary artists.

Works include Dartmoor-based photographer Susan Derges' recent rock pool series; film and photography by Dorothy Cross; Mikhail Karikis's video installation Sea Women; and Turner Prize-nominee Lucy Skaer's reworked 19th-century seaweed prints. There are also beautiful examples of pressed seaweeds from RAMM's own collections.
