A still of the Apnea Project Installation, by Vanessa Vozzo, a work featured in “The Sea is the Limit”, at the York Art Gallery, Exhibition Square, York, which explores migration, dispossession, and national borders, and features the work of 11 artists.

Opening the exhibition, the Archbishop of York, Dr Sentamu, said: “For those of us living in the British Isles, the sea has been one way of making ourselves feel secure and keeping others at bay. In the book of Revelation, St John the Divine sees a vision of a new earth where there is no sea, the boundary between people of different nations, tribes and languages has disappeared. This is a thought-provoking exhibition — I pray that all who see it will be provoked to think more deeply about the barriers we erect and how we welcome others to share our space.”

Varvara Shavrova, curator of “The Sea is the Limit”, with her work Blankets Project (below). The exhibition is open to the public until 2 September and is included in the admission price.
