Hull

Visual artists Laura Delaney and Danae Valenza have collaborated with the Mission to Seafarers to create a site-specific installation within the historic building. Audiences are invited inside to share a space where merchant seafarers spend their days between voyages. Mission to Seafarers provides a temporary home to a community of 60,000 seafarers who dock in Melbourne’s ports each year.

Art Exhibition previously on at 2012 Next Wave Festival in Melbourne precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Saturday 19 May 2012 to Sunday 27 May 2012

A constant turnover of ships, crew and stories has been translated into a body of visual and sound-based works, located throughout the building. Hull explores our connection to ports, patterns of migration and trade by turning to those who experience the realities of life at sea, tracing uncharted aspects of Melbourne’s maritime history and reconsidering the contemporary significance of seafaring communities.
