ART MEETS SCIENCE

Cecile Williams with her work, Forget Me Knot
Cecile Williams with her work, Forget Me Knot

West Australian artist Cecile Williams is returning with her first solo exhibition in five years. Since her last exhibition, Contained, at the 2010 Perth International Arts Festival, Williams has been exploring ocean environmentalism with ghost nets, unlawfully lost or discarded fishing nets left in our oceans. In this new exhibition, Trapped, Williams uses ghost nets and marine debris to explore the damage these nets do to our marine life by trapping sea animals and damaging coral reefs. The artworks also tell personal stories from Williams’ time in remote communities affected by ghost nets. Trapped shows at Gallery Central from Monday, May 18, to Thursday, June 11. A free event, Immersion, will see science meet art with a conversation about the impacts of marine debris in our oceans featuring a talk from Williams, on Saturday, June 6, at 10am.
