Date Posted: 23/10/2014

Running from now until 9th January 2015, Oceans, a solo show by Tania Kovats is the second exhibition at the new Hestercombe Estate’s Gallery in Somerset.

Oceans explores how we experience and engage with landscape and with the sea.

Hestercombe, famous for its beautiful, crafted landscape has been restored from near dereliction over the last 20 years.

In this show Kovats uses the natural world as both her subject and material.

Oceans, presents a selection of her work made between 1993 and 2014 and originally organised and presented by The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh.

One of the key collections in the exhibition is All the Sea (2012–14), a work made from sea water collected from around the world and decanted into 365 glass bottles.

Also featured in the show are sculpture pieces, drawings, ink and mixed media work.
