Journeys to the Edge

Two artists and a writer embarked on a creative journey, exploring the common urge to travel to the sea. Using the train service that runs from Bristol through Bradford on Avon to Weymouth, they travelled to the edge of their country. The result, presented here, is a collection of objects and artefacts gathered by the artists, plus their responses in words, photographs, paintings, sculptures and ceramics to the journeys they made.

Members of the public were invited to contribute their impressions and memories of the sea, and their responses to the exhibition by creating a poem on a magnetic board, or writing and making a beach flag.
