A Cure for Everything is a group exhibition bringing together works by nine artists working in photography, print, and video. Employing alternative or experimental techniques, each of the artists in the show push the boundaries and possibilities of how we picture the landscape.

“Do you know a cure for me?”
“Why yes,” he said, “I know a cure for everything. Salt water.”

The exhibition’s title is drawn from Isak Dinesen’s short story, The Deluge at Norderney, in which four strangers at a seaside resort trade tales as they seek refuge from rising floodwaters. As in Dineson’s writing, the works featured in A Cure for Everything picture the sea specifically, and nature generally, as place for healing and regeneration; a place for leisure and the implications of class access which follow; as destructive, regenerative, sublime, fragile, and ultimately essential.
