Delving into the deep, Imaginarium 2016 – the sixth edition of SAM’s children-focused annual exhibition – invites adventurers of all ages into the watery realms of our Earth as seen through the eyes of contemporary artists.
Over the Ocean, Under the Sea is a whimsical introduction to the many stories and ideas that surround seascapes, and presents tactile and interactive works that encourage discovery through exploration and play. At SAM at 8Q, young people are invited to comb the shores and navigate the deep where they make the acquaintance of mysterious denizens and underwater wonders. As protectors of the future, young visitors are invited to think about the impact we have on the natural world, and of how, through inventive and wise ideas, we can save our earth and its awe-inspiring oceans.
The origins of both life and civilisation have been inextricably bound to the sea. We still draw much of our food from the oceans, and many of the world’s greatest cities were founded as coastal settlements. Despite their importance to our survival, our oceans and seas remain susceptible to abuse and degradation.
