Carried Through the Water, a solo exhibition by Vancouver-based artist Diyan Achjadi, features the beautiful stop motion watercolour animation Hush, alongside new and recent works on paper that explore the impact of human activity on the ecosystem, including shifting of shorelines due to climate change and land reclamation. Through visual storytelling, Achjadi’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 by Diyan Achjadi is organized and circulated by the Nanaimo Art Gallery, and curated by Jesse Birch.
