The Unharvestable Sea
'The Unharvestable sea' is inspired by the story of the Iliad and its embodiment of the human condition.
It talks of wars and walls, a sense of entrapment within one’s own lands, gender inequality, kidnap and family squabbles. Its themes of love, gain and loss still resonate today.
I use the local coastal landscape to recreate the Iliad’s conflict between water and land: Homer’s ‘unharvestable sea’.
