Tidal Island

2014

Neil Henderson’s work has encompassed multiple projector pieces, experiments with the materiality of film and photography, and films about landscape. He is based in Whitstable.

A video work showing time lapse footage of an artificial island off the Lincolnshire coastline. Constructed in the 1970s as an experimental freshwater reservoir, Outer Trial Bank is accessible only at low tide across an expanse of mud flats and is no longer marked on Ordnance Survey maps. Henderson set up his cameras at low tide, leaving them in position to capture a view normally only seen by seabirds, who nest in their thousands on the island.

The work is approx 15 mins long on a loop. Visit at any point during opening times.
