John Akomfrah’s acclaimed video installation Vertigo Sea

‘A sensual, poetic and cohesive meditation on man’s relationship with the sea and exploration of its role in the history of slavery, migration, and conflict, Vertigo Sea comes to Towner with the context of the gallery’s location on the southern coastline of England, and the constantly changing boundary between land and sea.⁠ Acquired with support from Art Fund, the Derek Williams Trust, The Search Foundation through the Contemporary Art Society, and Towner Collection Development Fund.’⁠⠀

Location: Towner Gallery, Devonshire Park, College Rd, Eastbourne BN21 4JJ
