Songs of Salt
Songs of Salt was collectively conceived by Cave People: Jessica Akerman, Juliet Sugg, Christopher Rainbow and Ellie Curtis. It was first produced for the Whitstable Biennale Satellite Programme 2010 and went on to represent the Whitstable Biennale at the Southbank Centre as part of the Festival of Britain.
It was also hosted by Whitechapel Gallery in 2010. It included live performances by Dead Horse Morris and City Shanty band. It is an audio-visual installation inspired by shanties and tales of the sea. Exhibited in a beach hut, people were invited to lie back and immerse themselves in the narratives of those who have lived and worked on the ocean.
