Rescue Igloo, Moving worlds

Cathy Weyders

From as early as 2004, Cathy Weyders has been examining the themes revolving around drowning, floods and shipwrecks. Her observations on the ecological, environmental and urban have crystallized her research into a poetic approach. For the artist, the water is never far off. It rather lurks within her work through the use of material, such as life-jackets, or raincoats, but also through her constructions of ice-rafts and portholes.
