HIDE TIDE | LOW TIDE - 2019
Film installation

In 2019 Turner Contemporary in Margate commissioned Bethan Peters and Stacie Lee Bennett-Worth to create a new art work in response to their first photography exhibition - Seaside: Photographed.

The work was inspired by families contemporary experiences of life in a coastal town. During Spring 2019, they delivered workshops to families in collaboration with Thanet Early Years Project exploring the seaside through play, movement and digital media.

The film – which is part home movie, part cine-choreography – traces tender moments of fun, laughter and love as families play, dance and embrace on Margate’s beach.

TIDE AND SEEK - 2019
Vinyl floor installation

The routes of the installation, inspired by the coastlines of Thanet, represent the way children explore space in a curious way, sometimes rolling, jumping, waving, turning, swinging and falling as they go. With ‘meeting points’ and ‘action symbols’ designed to provoke connections and movement in the space, the work invites you to journey through the exhibition in a new way and explore the gallery through the eyes of a child.
