Lyme Regis Museum Presents Disappearing Walks – An Exhibition of the Art of Annabel Ralphs

The Lyme Regis Museum is to present Disappearing Walks – An Exhibition of the Art of Annabel Ralphs, on view 9th – 30th June 2011.

This exhibition is being mounted as part of ‘Maritime Lyme 2011’ and will complement the museum’s maritime walks week also being held in June.

Artist’s Statement:
‘Measures of geological time and tidal time are central to my work, a series of tidal drawings and other documentation, soundings and experiments started in the linear laboratory of the Jurassic coastline and continued in my studio, approximately 132 miles from the sea. The tides not only form the coastline over geological timescales but also alter our access to it from hour to hour and month to month.

My ideas evolve through repeated visits to the Dorset coast, but also by displacement, not being there. Contrasting sites where accessibility is, or has been determined by geological and tidal forces alters our perception of time and place.’

The Museum stands in the heart of the town of Lyme Regis, just where the beautiful coastlines of Dorset and Devon meet on the Jurassic Coast World heritage Site.
