Through a combination of text, found objects, printing, and personal photographs and letters, one of the UK’s leading artists, Ingrid Pollard examines journeys travelled and stories told, compressing experiences of time and space.

In this fascinating talk, Dr Mills explains how Pollard searches the troughs of oceanic swells in the vast seas of history, looking for the quiet stories flowing in and out with the tides. Homing in on the personal, she encourages us to listen closely to the intimate voices that are still so frequently obscured in formal narratives of the Atlantic Ocean.

Ella is an Associate Lecturer in Art History, and Creative Director of talking on corners. She is currently curating a new commission of Ingrid Pollard for a Devon-wide project, including an exhibition at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery (August–December 2022).
