Carried Through the Water Opening Reception
April 22, 7pm, all are welcome

Please join us for an evening with Diyan Achjadi to celebrate the opening of Carried Through the Water. Refreshments will be available.

For more information please visit our Facebook event page.

Carried Through the Water is a solo exhibition by Diyan Achjadi that features Diyan’s stop motion watercolour animation Hush, set alongside new and recent works on paper that reflect on the impact of human activity on the ecosystem, including shifting of shorelines due to climate change and coastal land reclamation. Through visual storytelling, Diyan’s work also considers how activities in one location might impact multiple other locations. An ash-cloud from volcanic activity on one island might change the colour of the sky thousands of miles away, and the movement of people, objects, stories, and memories can have profound effects that reach across oceans. Carried Through the Water is accompanied by a booklet and a Risograph print edition featuring reflections by Diyan Achjadi and Ashok Mathur that accent and inform the works in the exhibition.

This is the first exhibition in a series of projects through which Nanaimo Art Gallery asks the question: What stories do we tell? After the Nanaimo iteration this exhibition will tour to Burnaby Art Gallery where it will be on display from July 15 – Sept 18, 2022.
