Drawing upon the profound sense of place of the landscape of East Anglia, Waterlog was a multi-faceted exhibition project featuring a series of specially-commissioned works by some of Britain’s most compelling contemporary artists. Composed of a series of actual and imaginary journeys, Waterlog also invoked the digressive literary style of the German-born writer W.G. Sebald, whose books, such The Rings of Saturn, offer vivid reflections on the history and geography of the region he made his home before his untimely death in 2001.
