UNDERWAVE an underwater exhibition by sculptor Bettina Seitz

TREAD SOFTLY 2020 presents 


an underwater exhibition by sculptor Bettina Seitz

1st – 4th September


Landscape, mythology and filming feature in this collaborative project with the temporary mooring, filming and online streaming of sculptures under water.

“Underwave represents the successive arrivals to our shores, from Sligo’s earliest settlers through to people contributing to our modern multicultural society”. Bettina Seitz

Twelve sculptures will be situated behind Coney Island in the Sligo inner bay. The exhibition will be filmed daily, edited and published on line at the end of each day’s filming on www.treadsoftly.ie and all related social media platforms. Texts relating to the project will be published on the Tread Softly site from September 1st

The sculptures are made using Camauba wax and cotton fabric interlaced with recycled fishnet each measuring 1m in height and width.

Tread Softly would like to acknowledge the support of The Arts Council and Sligo County Council.
