Lindsay Dobbin presents an immersive installation of sound, poetry, and video, in this solo exhibition at Ross Creek Centre for the Arts. ‘Hear water become land. And land become water. The animacy of continual transformation. My body a measure of depth. Tidal flow propelled by the impulse to move.’ 
Composed of works that span several years of Dobbin’s practice, centred in deep listening, the language of nature, and the Bay of Fundy. Viewers are invited to listen, from low to high tide, to a resonant wave cycle between the land and this unique body of water. 

Dobbin’s relational and place-responsive practice includes music, sound art, performance, sculpture, installation, social practices and writing, and is invested in Indigenous epistemologies and cultural practices, such as drumming. Through placing listening, collaboration and improvisation at the centre of the creative process, Dobbin’s practice explores the connection between the environment and the body, and engages in a sensorial intimacy with the living land and water. 

This exhibit was supported in part by the Canada Council for the Arts.
