Kaori Homma

Life Boat Exhibition at APT

30 March 2024

28 March - 7 April 2024Thurs to Sun, 12-5pm


Taking the lifeboat as a metaphor for precarity, eight artists respond to our uncertain times, ecological and social change and shifting landscapes, from both local and global perspectives.


Life Boat brings together artists with a shared interest in exploring precarity as a site of dynamic transition. Each takes an investigative approach to the environmental, social and historical themes evoked by the lifeboat, as a means of addressing ecological crisis, liminal landscapes, close and distant horizons, boundaries and displacement, lines of rescue, navigation and transformation.


The gallery location in Deptford, once a major departure point for maritime trade and scientific expeditions from Deptford Dockyard, resonates with the exhibition’s concept of being ‘at sea’, in the sense of negotiating the unknown. Research into local histories and ecologies informs work created for the exhibition and is further expanded upon in the accompanying events programme.
