This Endless Sea is an installation work by Chloë Smith, housed inside a specially designed coastal shelter, that appeared on the Berwick coastline for 5 weeks in Summe 2022. Inside the shelter was a six screen, short moving image work and soundscape, that explored themes of grief and the sea. An intimate experience for one or two people (or a family) at a time, the work created a space for people to gently reflect on their own experiences of grief and loss.

There was also an online and captioned 3 screen version of the work, that was available to watch whilst the installation was open. 

This Endless Sea is a collaborative project, brought to life by a wonderful team of artists.
