Presented by Cape Ann Museum at Cape Ann Museum
July 14, 2012
water, water is the first collaborative museum show for mother–daughter artists Sarah Hollis Perry and Rachel Perry Welty. Perry and Welty organized and filmed their video performance Drawing a Line with the Tide in July 2011 using eighty volunteers from the seaside village of Annisquam in Gloucester, MA, where they both live. Included in the installation are three short films in which the artists explore aspects of identity and the complexity of the mother-daughter relationship of dependence, independence and interdependence.
