Ebb & Flow
5 August – 11 August | 11am – 5.30pm
Troy House Art Foundation
10-12 New Union Square, London
Re-imagining natural phenomena and the built environment, WHABBstudio presents Ebb & Flow, commissioned by Wandsworth Council.
Ebb & Flow, transforms Troy House Art Foundation’s London project space into an immersive audio visual experience using real-time tidal range data, accompanied by submerged sounds of the river at Nine Elms.
The climate crisis is changing the rhythm with which global tides ebb and flow. Current tide tables, which forecast tides down to the minute many years into the future, may prove to be inaccurate due to an increase of flash flooding, droughts, and rising sea levels. Ebb & Flow highlights where we are with local tides at the present moment in the timeline of tidal history.
The exhibition will animate transitory experiences of living on the River Thames, in the current time as mass development and change is happening in the local area.

About Troy House Art Foundation
The Troy House Art Foundation was established in London in 2017 by Shanghai-born artist and
producer Yuan Gong to encourage exchanges in contemporary art and culture, particularly between
Europe and Asia. To this end, Troy House | Art has been developed as a non-profit initiative, con
sisting of multimedia platforms currently spread across four locations in China and United Kingdom.
Responding to the transformed cultural and social environment of the post-pandemic world, these
platforms support aesthetic and environmental research and the production of experimental art, pho
tography, video, and film that both reflect and comment on these changing circumstances.
