Slow Violence and River Abuse: The Hidden Effect of Land Use on Water Quality (Jan 31- Feb 3 2023)


You are invited to attend an exhibition of UWE’s HAS-ACE Connecting Research Pilot project Slow Violence and River Abuse: The Hidden Effect of Land Use on Water Quality will be presented at Bower Ashton F block Gallery between January 31st– February 3rd 2023.

An opening preview will be held on Thursday February 2nd, 2023.

Researchers from HAS, Dr Gillian Clayton and Professor Darren Reynolds (HAS) and Researchers from ACE Niamh Fahy and Associate Professor Sarah Bodman have been collaborating on a project in Somerset, UK, from which Niamh is using data and samples collected by Gillian, to create printed outcomes that investigate and respond to the relationship between land use and aquatic health. The work uses several print processes which respond to the specificity of water bodies investigated and the initial findings gathered through fieldwork and lab analysis

Niamh Fahy is an artist and UWE researcher at the Centre for Print Research, investigating the possibilities and capacity for the print artist to challenge and expand modes of understanding anthropogenic changes within landscape. Niamh is interested in expanding interdisciplinary research projects between print artists and environmental science groups.

Dr Gillian Clayton is a UWE researcher in Water Sciences at the Centre for Research in Biosciences. Gillian Clayton is working on international sustainable development projects in the water, agri-food and health sectors, focussing on small-scale electrochemical treatment technologies to treat fresh waters.
