    Museum of Water


    Amy Sharrocks

    In the atmospheric underground spaces of Somerset House, Amy Sharrocks invited London to consider its relationship with the most precious liquid the world has to offer. As rain-forests disappear and climate change turns fertile land into deserts, access to fresh water will be one of the key issues of the coming decades. Sharrocks invited people to browse the museum’s collection and add to it themselves.

    Commissioned by Artsadmin in partnership with LIFT, Somerset House, the Cultural Institute at King’s College London and the Canal & River Trust. A Create to Connect commission and Imagine 2020 project, with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Originally commissioned by Artakt and LSHTM. Images: Amy Sharrocks.
