Swimming Without Water

Swimming Without Water is a new show that has opened at Moseley Swimming Baths curated by Maria Regla de Garcia-Bernal and Jimmy Lindqvist. The artists were Debby Akam, Flora Gare and Tim Skinner. The location of this show was amazing and despite the snow there was a great crowd at the preview, tentatively walking round the swimming pool with real life not an art piece swimmers as we nibbled on cake and sipped tea. The location was great and it was brilliant to see local curators seeking alternative spaces to work with. Some of the work wasn't to my taste, however, Flora's glass chandelier of the Union Jack fitted the site perfectly, it was a subtle piece that felt at home there and fingers crossed Moseley Baths buy it and keep it on site.
