Staring at the Sea: Dalziel/Scullion

Humanitys universal relationship to the environment has always been at the heart of Matthew Dalziel and Louise Scullions work, and in large part stems from their own working and living proximity to the ocean on the coastline of Scotland in the fishing village of St Combs. Kubler conducts an examination of some of Dalziel and Scullions installations, many of which offer that most magical and rare thing in art, the miraculous. Kubler looks at their collaborative works General Release, Sargassum, Rain and Melt and the various ways they have explored the Nature/Culture dichotomy. In particular cyclical weather patterns and mankinds evolving interaction with Nature.
